The University of Virginia (UVA) invites registration for a conference and workshop entitled Bridging Science, Art, and Community in the New Arctic. This three-day event will convene 23-25 September 2019 at UVA in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The first day of the event will feature a symposium with invited speakers on Arctic environmental sciences, social sciences, art, and architecture followed by an evening Arctic-themed musical performance.

The following two days of the event will be half-day workshops on four interdisciplinary themes (encompassing ecosystem science, art, built-environment, design, social sciences), with participation from established practitioners, student researchers, and Arctic Youth Ambassadors. The evening of the second day will feature an art exhibition at an on-grounds gallery. Additional art will be exhibited throughout the symposium and workshop, at and nearby the meeting venue.

A poster session will occur on the third evening, with posters available for viewing throughout the event.

Registration is free and open to the public. Drinks and snacks will be provided during conference events. Travel, lodging, and meals are at attendees’ expense.
