In this informal gathering, UCLA Art | Science center director Victoria Vesna presents the concept, research and work of the recently established center housed in two locations – Broad Art center and the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI). She is joined by co-chairs of the Leonardo Education Forum, Ellen Levy, Andrea Polli, Nina Czegledy and guests. Together they will discuss some of the most recent activities, challenges and opportunities that this internationally oriented organization is involved in. After this, Victoria will lead a tour of the NANO exhibition she co-created with nanoscientist James Gimzewski, followed by tea reception mixer where ideas and contacts will be exchanged and the launch of the Filter magazine published by the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT).
