Co-Lab: Science Meets Street Art brings together street artists and early career scientists to collaborate one-on-one and conceptualise artworks based on the scientists’ research and discoveries. The public is then invited watch as these artworks evolve throughout the event and read descriptions written by the scientists. The scientists involved are also on hand to answer your niggling questions as you take in the science-inspired street art.
Watch street artists at work as science-inspired murals take shape throughout the day. Local street artists have collaborated one-on-one with early career scientists to create these artworks that celebrate their research and discoveries. The scientists will also be on hand to answer your questions! Food, drinks science stalls and entertainment will be available throughout the day at the Old Bus Depot nearby.
