Here is an input for your 5-year review…

#ArtSciConverge is bringing together field stations and marine labs,
arts funders, writers, artists, philosophers, cognitive scientists,
museums, STEM to STEAM educators, archivists, writers, and others to
advance the integration of arts and science at sites of long-term
environmental research. SEAD's "Steps to an Ecology of Networked
Knowledge and Innovation" (MIT Press, 2015), provides guidance to the
effort, identifying potential pitfalls and opportunities. Amy Ione of
SEAD presented on the paper at the #ArtSciConverge formation workshop
in June, 2015 at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, NV.

The goal of #ArtSciConverge is to map a path forward in which arts and
humanities activities contribute as they always have to science
outreach and education, but also to fundamental inquiry, discovery,
and analyses of the grand challenges facing social-ecological systems.

Our vision is that, within five years, it will be the norm and not the
exception to include artists, humanists and social neurobiologists
with ecologists on teams that are exploring and seeking to solve the
complex social and environmental problems we face in the coming
