The Arts Meet Science project is an organization comprised of scientists and artists from across the globe who believe that artistic and scientific pursuits by one do not benefit the society in the absence of engagement with the other. The project also seeks to endow the next-generation of artists and scientists with a broader perspective and deeper cultural appreciation to enable them to expand the scope of their contributions as well as to foster changes that will lead to a better and more peaceful world.
Towards this end, the project has hosted several public events with eminent and international artists and scientists attending to dive into subjects that co-integrate emerging concepts in the arts and science fields. Prior forums have addressed questions and themes including, “What is the common ground between art and science” and “Towards integration of music and biomedical sciences.” The project’s second public meeting was jointly held with Nature Café by Springer Nature. Recently, the project has begun to expand beyond the public forums by expanding initiatives that facilitate opportunities for innovation and intellectual motivation.
