What is it?
Sci Art Walks is a series of audio artworks featuring talks by some of Tasmania's most fascinating and accomplished scientists and artists, with original music composed and performed by a jaw-dropping lineup of Tassie musicians. Each Sci Art Walks episode is paired with a suggested iconic walk in Tasmania.
How does it work?
🌿 You choose a location (we’ve covered pretty much every corner of the state), and go there -- in reality, or just in your mind.
🌿 You stream or download the associated episode, accessible from anywhere in the world.
🌿 You embark on the suggested walking trail (or not - we won’t check).
🌿 You don’t pay, because it’s free.
🌿 You don’t stare at your screen, because it’s all in your ears.
🌿 You do go outside, if you can, because everything is better with a little fresh air.
Which scientists and artists are involved?
Oh, so many interesting, talented, worth-hearing-from people, all of whom happen to reside in Tasmania.
When and where can I get my ears on this?
Sci Art Walks will be available from 22 August, as part of National Science Week, via this website and some other places too. Sign up here to get an alert and instructions for accessing Sci Art Walks as soon as it's up.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is this a Zoom thing? I don't know how to use Zoom.
A: Neither do we. It's not even a screen thing. You back slowly away from your computer, out your front door, and into the great outdoors.
Q: Do I need to be in Tasmania to listen?
A: Nope. You can listen from anywhere in the world. If you can't make it to one of our suggested walking locations, find a nice walk near you. Or just go outside.
Q: Do I need to wear pants? I have stopped wearing them on Zoom.
A: Get off Zoom! Pants aren't required, but highly recommended. Shoes too.
