Cadence meets climate change! Leading Edinburgh scientists have been challenged to create new performances in collaboration with Loud Poets. The result? A display of rhyme and reason, mashing up science and spoken word in an interdisciplinary exploration of our warming world.
Experimental Words was an evening at the Scottish Storytelling Centre organized by Sam Illingworth, Senior Lecturer in Science Communication and Dan Simpson, poet, as a way of encouraging scientists and poets to develop interdisciplinary explorations of their work. Contributors: Katie Ailes, Ardith Bravenec, Doug Garry, Will Goodwin and Paul Palmer.
