WeSTARTMarch 9 20216 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

This time we will be hosting a session that will explore how artists and science/ tech collaborators have / are resetting their practice, work and collaborations to address the future challenges of 2021 and beyond – addressing post-pandemic recovery, ongoing claimte change and resilience, political division, rascism and fascism, and more. 

During this WeSTART session, we would like to invite S+T+ARTS community members for an online meet-up and exchange of ideas. We will invite a number of you to present your work/a project/a partnership that you are hatching for future development on issues / challenges for the future and possibly looking for a collaborator to help, as well as to participate in a general conversation about the future solutions and roads to recovery: economically, socially, personally, artistically, technologically, environmentally and health-wise. 

Please get in touch with us to let us know if you would like to present on the day and we can make arrangements with you. 

Email Lucy Bunnell (lbunnell@uca.ac.uk) by March 5th to register your interest. 


Since its beginning, the S+T+ARTS programme has been exploring how the combination of arts, science and technology can help us to create a better, more sustainable future. The current crisis and the need for new sustainable solutions amplifies the importance of S+T+ARTS as never before. As a response to the COVID crisis we started the first WeSTART sessions in spring 2020. Now it is time for new season that promises to unveil more about the impact of S+T+ARTS and contribute to strengthen and support its growing community. Alongside the best S+T+ARTS projects and cutting-edge speakers, the upcoming programme also wants to provide a place for our community to network and discuss.  

Reflecting this, we introduce two formats of monthly online talks and conversations:  

– FOCUS ON: the “Focus On” sessions features some of the best speakers and S+T+ARTS projects, aimed at showing the impact of S+T+ARTS in diverse domains of society.   

– COMMUNITY GATHERING: during the monthly “Community Gathering” sessions we invite our registered community members to join us for an open and informal discussion. This is the place where we like to share thoughts, practice new forms of collective thinking and provide a platform for creating new inspiring connections.
