Exploring the richness of space imagery through enagaging in creative dialogue with academic researchers.
Creativity and Curiosity is a new project led by Acuity Arts who are collaborating with three artists, Ione Parkin RWA, Alison Lochhead and Gillian McFarland, whose work draws connections and inspiration from astronomy and space.
Last year Creativity and Curiosity secured a small grant from Royal Astronomical Society to engage with Astronomers, astrophysicists, researchers and scientist to create new dialogue and discussion about space and astronomy.
This encouraged both the artists and astronomers to discuss and critique their own work taking on board new experiences, learning and ways of seeing as both groups explored the subject from opposing views.
Creativity and Curiosity are now exploring a touring programme.
