2019 Leahy Center Environmental Summit
"Think of a time when science and art together created,
or may create, a powerfully positive outcome"
We asked Summit participants to co-create a work of art that answered this question.
More than 160 participants from around the state shared strategies for communicating the science that will engage Vermonters. This unique gathering brought artists, scientists, and watershed activists from around the state to explore the power of storytelling, successful examples of creative placemaking, and opportunities for creative partnerships.
In the coming months, we'll explore how to provide more tools, training, and successful examples of these powerful, creative approaches.
