Participating artists and scientists:
Aileen Penner has been mentioned here before most relevantly in a Dec. 4, 2012 posting about an art/science poetry reading she had organized. In glancing through it, I noticed Lynne Quarmby, one of the my suggestions for Canada’s Chief Science Officer/Advisor in a Nov. 5, 2015 posting was one of the scientists paired up with a poet.
Also mentioned here previously was Erik Zepka in the context of an April 15, 2015 Curiosity Collider event mentioned in my July 7, 2015 posting about Curiosity Collider and Anecdotal Evidence and their past and future science storytelling events.
