The Exploratorium — Museum as Field Station: Public Platforms and Collective Knowledge

April 29, 2016
10:00am  -  12:00pm
Pier 15, The Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA 94111

The Exploratorium was founded in 1969 as a “community museum dedicated to awareness.” In this workshop, we will introduce participants to the pedagogical roots of this hybrid public environment that combines elements of a laboratory, studio, classroom and museum with the mission to empower learners and activate civic participation.

Artist-in-resident Rosten Woo, who is developing a project in the context of the new Exploratorium Bay Observatory will discuss his work-in-progress in order to generate a discussion of how artistic inquiries can complement scientific research to further public dialogue on critical social issues such as climate change.

Workshop space is limited to 15 participants. Please register by contacting cai@exploratorium.edu
