The Council on Science and Technology (CST) held its inaugural Living at the Intersection Symposium on April 12-13, 2018 on the Princeton University campus. The 2018 Symposium focused on the intersection of Engineering and the Arts and was co-hosted by Princeton’s School of Engineering and Applied Science and by Princeton’s Lewis Center for the Arts.
The Symposium opened with a performance of There Might Be Others and showcase of works on Thursday evening April 12, 2018 and continued throughout the day on Friday April 13, 2018, with four panel sessions, a keynote lecture by American sculptor and fiber artist Janet Echelman, and performance by Bora Yoon (Music Composition, IHUM '20) and Joshue Ott (Interval Studios, Brooklyn). The Symposium engaged participants in an exploration of “living at the intersection” of engineering and the arts with thought leaders, researchers, artists, faculty, students, and professionals who create at or near this intersection.
CST has launched the biennial Living at the Intersection Symposium series in service to its mission to broaden and deepen participation in STEM. The Symposium series facilitates engagement that is unconstrained by disciplinary labels by cultivating opportunities for new and meaningful study, exploration, and collaboration, at intersections of the sciences, engineering, humanities, arts, and social sciences.
