Science & Poetry Café
Join us for an interdisciplinary exploration and celebration of science and poetry.
Featuring poets from across the world, the Science & Poetry Café presents an inclusive space for people to listen to poems that explore the intersections of the sciences and the arts, share their own science poetry, and discuss their experiences. The event will last for approximately 60 minutes and has been chosen to take place at a time that allows for the involvement of a truly global audience.
Upon registration you will also have the opportunity to indicate that you would like to read one of your own science poems at this event.
The Science & Poetry Café is a joint collaboration between Consilience (the world’s first peer-reviewed science & poetry journal), and Falling Walls Engage (the global platform for science engagement).
