As an interdisciplinary institute, IIASA researchers are used to working across disciplinary boundaries. As a policy-focused research center, IIASA is regularly in contact with policymakers and stakeholders. Yet it is rare even in an institute like IIASA to reach outside the walls of science and policy into other areas of society like the arts, even though much could be gained from such interactions.

Based on the realisation that science needs a new kind of language to reach the public, the IIASA Science & Art project developed a method to create research projects involving artists and scientists with the objective to transmit key scientific findings to society. The resulting productions aimed to drive sustainable transformation  through active learning and experience.
