Examining the Potential of Art-Science Collaborations in the Anthropocene 

18 FEBRUARY 2020 | at 10.00-12.00

Marriott Marquis - Point Loma, L1

#OSM20 #OceanDecade

ABSTRACT: In a world of constantly shifting biophysical and social realities, we face an ever-evolving need for new ideas about sustainable development. Art, in its many forms, has the liberty and ability to generate shifts in social perceptions and behaviors in ways that science and data currently do not. There in an immediate need to reinvigorate linkages between the arts and sciences in order to address urgent issues of our time. Despite recognition of this need, truly integrated, co-designed, and co-produced art-science collaborations are rare and underfunded. Using coasts and oceans as thresholds, indicators and protagonists, this workshop combines artistic and scientific presentations with facilitated discussion to examine mechanisms to develop fully collaborative projects, from issue identification through instigation, execution, and legacy of developed outcomes.

Our workshop is part of the

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE: The Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) is the flagship conference for the ocean sciences and the larger ocean-connected community.  As we approach the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, beginning in 2021, it is increasingly important to gather as a scientific community to raise awareness of the truly global dimension of the ocean, address environmental challenges, and set forth on a path towards a resilient planet. 

The Ocean Sciences Meeting 2020 is co-sponsored by AGU, the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography Society (TOS).  Through the combined power of these three organizations, along with the broader conservation-focused community, this meeting provides attendees the opportunity to bridge disciplines, connect communities, and make lasting partnerships. 

The 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting will be held 16-21 February 2020 at the San Diego Convention Center, in San Diego, CA. The Ocean Sciences Meeting will bring together scientists from all ocean science disciplines from around the world to discuss all aspects of oceanography. OSM consists of a diverse program and is much anticipated for international scientists, students, and industry practitioners who come to exchange information and learn about new and exciting research affecting the field.
