The value of art-science collaboration is becoming increasingly recognised in the top research centres around the world.

Scientists have been working productively with visual artists, musicians, performers, conceptual, and technology artists. What are the opportunities for such collaboration at a great African research university such as Wits? Professor Christo Doherty from The Wits School of Arts will present case studies of successful art-science collaborations as examples of international best practice. What has worked, and in what contexts, and disciplines? This will be a discussion about the ways in which scientific research at Wits can be amplified by collaborations with artists.
