TxHATS March 2015

In March 2015, the TxHATS Experts Network held a “convening” activity intended to trigger collaborations and cooperation between experts in science, engineering and the arts, design and humanities that was co-led by xREZ Director Ruth West, UT Dallas Art-Sci Lab Director Roger Malina, and Texas A&M University and SEAD network Director Carol LaFayette.

Meeting at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum in Austin, Texas Mar.12, experts joined for a day-long conference intended to trigger collaborations and cooperation between experts in science, engineering and the arts, design and humanities. Nineteen experts from fields as varied as astrophysics, geophysics, neuroscience, physics, photography, space art, journalism, economic development and business incubation, AI in theater, land museum and science gallery curation, holography and more gathered at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum to talk about interdisciplinary collaboration in art-science-technology.

The March meeting was followed by an ATX LASER salon, a series open to the public that encourages dialogue between diverse perspectives on innovation within the art and science communities both locally and internationally. ATX LASER collaboration fosters innovation and learning that affects community sustainability, culture and economic growth.
