Why should we care about science? How can different audiences embrace the story of science into their own life-story? What is trustworthy science and how do we perform it through the media, the universities, the knowledge commons? The talk-action will focus on the need to unite communities through art with science to imagine new futures for heightened meaningful interactions and research. 

This event is part of the Teatro della Meraviglia's programme. For further information visit the website
