IAS faculty member Becca Price, along with Martha Groom, Jason Pace, Amy Lambert, Sarah Verlinde (Office of Research), Gabe Barnes (Wetlands) and Chris Mangialardi (Wetlands), hosted a team of Chilean scholars who are actively combining arts and science. These scholars are participating in Arts + Science Knowledge Building and Sharing in the XXI Century (ASKXXI), a US-Chile program fostering collaboration in arts, technology, and ecological sciences to explore marine and terrestrial ecology and conservation in Chile and the Pacific Northwest, and they are funded by the US Embassy in Chile. While visiting UW Bothell, the scholars learned about our wetlands restoration, explored ecoarts, considered efforts to decolonize science through artistic practice, and contemplated the meaning of collections in natural history museum.
