STEAM in action with a fantastic article from The Stage. James Doeser takes us through the explosion of collaborations between science and theatre. An element of daily life, like medicine, seems removed from ourselves and our understanding, despite us interacting with it constantly. We love how the article recognises the importance of finding ways to communicate scientific concepts, and the unique ability that the stage has to do this.
Scan the programme of any UK science festival and you will see that we are living through a golden age of collaboration. Whether it’s climate change, particle physics, public health or biodiversity, scientists can look to artists including dancers, choreographers and theatremakers to connect the public with their work.
