Arts Science Initiative
About the Initiative
Art and design can create change: The Doomsday Clock, one of the most iconic designs of the 20th Century, is an example of that. From its earliest days, the Bulletin has featured both science and the visual arts in its publishing, recognizing that art can move people and ideas in ways that are often more powerful than published scientific research alone. It was this combination of art and science that made the Bulletin a unique and powerful voice over the decades.
The Bulletin's Arts Science Initiative brings together artists and scientists, providing a platform for artists grappling with the challenges associated with science and technology, focusing specifically on nuclear risk, climate change, disruptive technologies, and biosecurity.
Our goal is to capture the public's imagination, spark citizen engagement, and encourage creative solutions to humanity's greatest threats. By working together with leading artists, designers, and creative communicators, the Bulletin seeks to broaden the conversation, generating innovative ways of framing crucial issues around peace and security.
