Join an RSBO working Group!

Art & Science Group

Would you like to be part of an Arts & Science initiative?

This is a unique opportunity to have your research project exposed as a piece of visual art!

We are looking for scientists (trainees, researchers) willing to welcome an artist-in-residence in their lab or to help us in the organisation of exhibits/symposiums/workshops on the subject…

If you are interested to join this group, we will a) organise an information session to explain our ideas and receive your questions & comments, b) identify the people that are interested in working individually with the artists or to organize events related to the project (exhibits) and c) prepare an agenda of the next steps.

The RSBO expects the group to meet 1-3 times a year.

Please send an email at andree.lessard@mcgill.ca if you are interested to join our group.
