What does landscape art have to do with science? Science seeks to document, measure, and record; art seeks to move us, inspire us, and respond.

Yet these two contrasting perspectives have much to tell each other – and offer us very different ways of seeing, understanding and responding to the changing world around us. Perhaps, by bringing them together, we might find powerful ways to connect and live well with our future of environmental change.

This panel discusson will draw on the artworks displayed at the Hadley’s Art Prize exhibition to explore how art and science prompt us, in different ways, to see, understand and relate to environmental change.

At this event, the panellists (Penny Jones, James Hattam, Amy Jackett and Megan Walch) will discuss ways that art, science, and their intersection can connect us to landscape and landscape change. Moderated by Jamie Kirkpatrick, the event will include generous time for questions and discussion. You will also be able to view the Hadley’s Art Prize exhibition (showcasing the 2019 finalists) prior to and following the event.

Come and see the works, participate in the discussion, and connect to themes from bushfire, floods, and the landscapes of deep time.

Free afternoon tea (tea, coffee and scones) provided.
