What can artists learn from scientists, what can scientists learn from artists, and how is the union of the two a key to creativity?
Join us for a conversation led by some of Canada’s top theatre-makers and scientific minds featuring:
The Siminovitch Forum is a series of events stimulating dialogue on theatre innovation. A lively panel discussion will be followed by small group conversations. Simultaneous translation will be available for this bilingual conversation.
The Key to Creativity, the second in the Siminovitch Forum series, is produced by Mikaela Davies, in honour of playwright, Elinore Siminovitch and molecular biologist, Lou Siminovitch. Elinore and Lou had a marriage that beautifully symbolized the bond between arts and sciences, and they understood firsthand how both fields were in pursuit of the mysteries of human existence.
