CONFLUENCE: Femel_Fissions Symposium
19 July

In conjunction with the exhibition Femel_Fissions, CONFLUENCE will provide a platform to discuss political and social themes of creative practice at the intersection of art, science and technology.

The one-day symposium will present and discuss the dynamic ideas, hybrid outcomes and technological innovation that occur when art and science collide within practice. CONFLUENCE will also examine the representation of women working in art and science, and the challenges and experiences of women at the forefront of these fields.

CONFLUENCE will include a keynote address and two panel sessions from prominent practitioners in art and science, followed by the opening of Femel_Fissions at 5pm.
