Merging Left and Right Brains: At the Intersection of Creativity and Geoscience Posters


Session ID#: 8002

Session Description:
In the current age of wicked problems and big data there is increasing recognition of the role the creative industries can play in geoscience research: no longer confined to simply engaging audiences and contributing to science communication, they are also starting to play a vital role in data analyses. In this interdisciplinary session we invite contributions from geoscientists, those within the creative industries and educators to demonstrate and highlight the potential that can be unlocked by combining scientific approaches with those of other disciplines. We encourage submissions of completed, on-going and beginning projects, to stimulate discussion, shared learning and development. Furthermore, we are keen to receive submissions that focus on how to appropriately measure and demonstrate the impact of these collaborations.
