Engineering x Arts: Charting Creativity (Grade 9-12)
UBC Geering Up presents Engineering x Arts: Charting Creativity for all students in Grades 9 to 12.
In the October of 1966, 10 artists and 30 engineers came together to create or use technology in inventive ways to help with performing arts in a series of events called "9 Evenings of Theatre and Engineering". For instance, 9 Evenings was the first time theatre saw screen projection on stage! Engineering has always been a fundamental pillar for artistic exploration! At the Engineering x Arts event, there will be various "Arts Hubs" that will study how a particular artistic endeavour is strengthened by engineering principles. With mentors coming from an arts, engineering or mixed background, you will get to tinker, create or make a micro-art project based on the Arts Hub you choose! From photography to fashion and beyond, we will learn how both these extremes of arts and engineering combine to create a spectrum of possibilities. This is an event you do not want to miss!
