Science Art Collaborations

By combining the curiosity, inquiry and knowledge that exists in both disciplines, scientists and artists transcend existing boundaries to create new ideas resulting in ideologically confronting and visually stimulating artworks.  Curated by Michelle Hall, Emergence is a project  between science based organisations and artists, funded by Arts Queensland. 

Community Projects

La Luna Youth Arts provides best-practice artistic opportunities through a range of creative arts programs, projects, productions and events for children and young people 18 months to 30 years. We partner with many community projects including Palm Creek Folk Festival, Christmas in the City and Celebrate Townsville to deliver visual arts experiences for young people. 

Artist in Residence - Emergence

Guided by artists and teachers, students created animations aimed at  convincing  the community to protect the reef and sea creatures.  Students developed visual arts, animation and green screen skills to create the animations based on their scientific understanding of the ocean and sea creatures. Art became the tool to relate science based knowledge to a community  audience, addressing  regional issues often difficult to talk about. You can find the animations by clicking on the links...
