In 2018 artist Anna Glynn and biologist Peter Dalmazzo will take part in the ARNA-project Art, Ecology & Science to connect the vision for a new UNESCO biosphere reserve and the development of science facilities for material studies in the region of Skåne in Sweden.
The aim for the project is to test how a future art program can create crossborder experiences between the fields of Art, Ecology & Science to support public outreach and a sustainable development.
During 2018 the project will involve five artists and develop cooperations together with the municipalities of Sjöbo, Lund and Eslöv, the Science Village Scandinavia, the science facility MAX IV, the Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences at Lund University. Connections are also developed around the globe, with Matsalu Nature Film Festival in Estonia, Sitka Center for Art and Ecology in Salmon Head biosphere reserve in USA and Noosa Biosphere reserve in Australia.
Art, Ecology & Science is developed by the organization ARNA i Fågelriket with support from Region Skånes kulturnämnd.
