The CoVA Art and Science program, supported by Science Gallery Melbourne, facilitates vital, national and international research projects in this space, building relationships between the University of Melbourne and scientific and creative research institutions across the world.
As our communities face some of the most critical challenges in human history – such as climate change, artificial intelligence and gene editing – shared conversations and collaborative research between scholars across the arts and sciences is essential to surviving and thriving through these radical moments in future history. At the nexus of art and science are some of the most relevant and creative projects in contemporary scholarship.
