Broto: A Conference Blending Cape Cod's Science and Art Communities

In their own words: 

“How might Provincetown’s largest art gallery work with its largest science organization?”

The question was asked just days after momentous signing of the Paris Accord in December 2015 when most of the world agreed to tackle greenhouse gas emissions, a driver of human-acclerated climate change.

Now, we have Broto: Art & Science Collaborations addressing climate change. A partnership of Center for Coastal Studies Provincetown and Provincetown Art Association & Museum, Broto is dedicated to fostering, cataloguing and showcasing “substantive, mutual, real-time and credible” art-science collaborations that are pointed at our climate change challenge.

Happening May 4-6 in Provincetown, the conference will begin the process of establishing a blueprint for art/science collaboration that can be replicated here and around the world.
