Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


Visualisation makes the invisible visible. It brings artists and scientists together to create images which tell a story. From archaeological excavations to museum collections, this imagery can take complex research and make it accessible to broad audiences. But science is only part of the story, local communities also have an important role to play in reconstructing our past.

Science communication for Arctic heritage connects art and science with the lived experiences and knowledge of communities across the circumpolar north. In this talk, hear from a team of artists, archaeologists and museum professionals working with communities in Greenland, Canada and Alaska to bring the past to life through 3D visualisation, animation and multi-vocal storytelling.
