Throughout the year, the Arts, Science + Culture Initiative produces a diverse range of programs that bring together UChicago faculty and students with other cultural thinkers and professionals from the Chicago-area and beyond. The Initiative curates experimental situations and interactive events to generate new and unexpected exchanges between these practitioners. On topics as wide-ranging as digital culture, urbanism, medical imaging, and the cosmos, the Initiative’s public programs critically challenge scientists and artists to collide disciplinary methodologies, sparking new bodies of research and lines of inquiry.
