Since 1993, The Arts Catalyst has worked nationally and internationally to promote understanding and cooperation between people from different disciplines and cultures, seeking new ways to involve artists, scientists and the wider public in a discourse about the direction and impact of science in society, and to explore new ideas and possibilities. The Arts Catalyst explores, generates and shares ideas through contemporary art—exhibitions, events, workshops, residencies, conferences, publishing, research, and learning and participatory projects.
