Art and science to boost Jurassic Coast

A CONFERENCE will be held to discuss how artists and scientists can work together to improve the management of the Jurassic Coast.

The third Creative Coast Forum event will be held at the University of Exeter on September 10.

The discussion will be illustrated by some of the creative work that has taken place over the last four years along the coastline.

The key note speaker will be Professor Deborah Dixon from Aberystwyth University, part of a team researching ‘art-science collaborations: bodies and environments’. The debate in the afternoon will be chaired by BBC Radio 4’s Material World presenter, Quentin Cooper.

Daisy Sutcliffe, Creative Coast 2012 coordinator, said: “This event will begin an international discourse around natural science, art and the value and management of World Heritage Sites.

“Having the Olympic and Paralympic Games off the Jurassic Coast has given us the unique opportunity to begin this ground breaking work while there is media attention here.”

Like the rox on stix, the barge load of rocks or the wind-driven noisemakers in a quarry for example?
