Festival 2012

Welcome to the 15th edition of our annual Festival!

This year’s Festival will take place from May 24, 2012 to May 27, 2012. As always, we’re bringing you a packed program of presentations, workshops, performances, screenings and more, all connected by links to science & art.

Read a welcome message from the Festival Director of Programs, Jim Ruxton.

We’re happy to be co-presenting this year’s Festival for the first time with Ryerson University!

We are trying something a little different this year. The main Festival days (Friday May 25, Saturday May 26 and Sunday May 27) will each have different related themes:

  • Friday May 25: Art, technology & science ideas, selected from a variety of different fields
  • Saturday May 26: Biology and Art — artists and scientists who share an interest in biology
  • Sunday May 27: The Immortal Body—events inspired by the story of Henrietta Lacks, cell technologies, medical research and the body
