Lens on Health: Indigenous and Western Views
9 August, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Watch, listen and experience how artists and scientists share knowledge of relationships between the health of environments and human health: physical, emotional, spiritual.
Stories about health often focus on the optimal biological functioning of individual people in isolation. It is easy to forget that living things are connected and that the health of an individual involves their capacity to listen, engage with and respond physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually to changing environments. ‘Lens on Health’ invites you to hear Indigenous and non-Indigenous scientists and artists tell what they know about relationships between the health of environments and human health. Learn hands-on how Indigenous cultural knowledge continues to be passed on through the languages of the arts and how Western science methods are universally used to predict how living things respond to changes in natural climate patterns. Explore the art and science of learning on virtual country through new media technology. Look through microscopes and draw tiny things. Make your own take-home message ‘Lens’ to remember your experience.
This event is staged in the UTS Data Arena, Building 11 (Engineering) and in the School of Life Sciences, level 6 Building 7 (Science) and facilitated by Lisa Roberts, Artist in Residence in the UTS Faculty of Science with scientists and other scholars who collaborate with her.
The event will be video recorded and excerpts published on the Living Data website.
