Symposium - The revolution in science and art | BioArt Revolution

This fun, engaging, open and honest symposium brings together internationally renowned artists, scientists and science communicators and educators to explore the magic that happens when artists take a deep dive into cutting edge science working hands on with genetic modification, dangerous diseases, and even robots, and push the boundaries of what is possible. In a city that already knows the power of revolution we invite you join the BioArt Revolution.
