Review of recent Future Human Symposium in SciArt in America

Review of our recent Future Human Symposium at GV art gallery, by Liane Fredericks, in SciArt in America

To step into a program like Broad Vision, students have to accept that it might not be the most direct route to PhD funding. They need to be prepared to work within an emergent and “chaordic” learning process. In return, Broad Vision provides an unpatronizing mentored space for students to go beyond their disciplinary silos.”
