Want to find out what happens when you put art and science in a test tube, and shake? You’d better put August 18 on your calendar. The Arts Vs Science Festival is Lismore’s own petri dish of creative exploration, its paint palette of scientific discovery.

Created by the Northern Rivers Science Hub, this one day arts, science and music festival is a multi-dimensional exploration of the intersection of Art and Science.  This year the magic of Science Week collides at Lismore’s own creative playground, The Lismore Quadrangle (The Quad).

Sculpted for your enlightenment, the Arts Vs Science Festival has found the equation for explosive fun! The Arts Vs Science Festival brings together artists and scientists (and everyone in between) from some of the region’s leading education, research and action institutions.

Now in its third year, Arts Vs Science brings together artists and scientists (and everyone in between) from some of the region’s leading education, research and action institutions.  By harnessing the collaboration that forms the core of The Quad and the Northern Rivers Science Hub, offers something for everyone. We’ll blow the kids minds (and other things up), and expand your thinking. We’ll fill your ears with new sounds and wild ideas, your belly with tasty local produce (and show you how to reduce food waste) and open your eyes to how these creative expressions of our world can help us to interpret our own lives.

Science on the Green will have activities for all ages like daytime astronomy, (have you ever seen the moonrise at 11am in the morning?, there will be waste science, water science, installations and exhibitions from some of the region’s foremost artists. Music on the Green will bring some musical spark to the day. Interactive science and arts workshops are on the periodic table in the Library Science Lab. Thought-provoking discussions on innovative arts/science ideas in the Gallery Bright Ideas Forum.  The Con Studio Underground will examine the science of sound and more! We’ve even got a silent disco! Come discover a world where art meets science!
