Sociologists will study the visual culture of 2020 and say, in that moment black artists helped society change, instill new values, & translate experiences. Artists open the doors to dialogue & communication beyond boundaries. Let’s celebrate artists’ imagination & let them in. Let them in.

Artists and scientists alike are focused on exploring the world and try to understand the universe through introspection, examination and experimentation. Their differences in perspective and methodology can lead to novel dialogue. Combining scientific exploration with creative expression offers unique opportunities for forming new knowledge, discovery and creativity. To tackle the intractable challenges of our global society requires a brand new language – a language of interdisciplinarity, interconnectedness, and intersectionality. Relational Space provides an immersive space for artistic expression and scholarly knowledge exchange with focus on Evidence-based Art: Art presented in relation to empirically supported ideas to promote transformational social change. Relational Space encourages communication and collaboration among artists, scientists, policy-makers and community activists. Our vision sees a more just and sustainable world, inspired by art and transformed through truth.
