Art & Science

Each day, various events and workshops will offer participants an artistic vision of the resilience of societies: circus, photos, dance, music, and relational aesthetics!

An important aim for the Organizing Committee has been to provide an arena to build a dialogue between Art and Science. A full “thematic pathway” in the program is dedicated to this interaction. This page focuses only on the artistic events that are paralleled with other activities in the program.
