Greetings one and all! After much anticipation, we are excited to announce an intriguing new initiative that continues to blend the worlds of art and science: the Happigenetics Science Extravaganza!
Happigenetics Science Extravaganza is a Science/Arts trans-genre outreach project – an experiment in the public communication of science through art – merging science outreach and modern theater. This event will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, on July 13th, 2013 at Erarta. We’ll fuse real-time scientific experimentation within a theatrical setting, and physical theater, accompanied by experimental live audio and video sequences. The goal of this project is to increase the public awareness of experimental biology and research culture – and to celebrate the mystical aesthetics of the natural experimentation process. Much scientific research is sponsored with public funds because it is generally beneficial for society, but how do we increase awareness of the range of research-related activities ongoing and their significance to society? Our goal is the spread the word in a way that stimulates and entertains!
