About this event

Rose Hiscock presents the 2021 Stephen Murray-Smith Memorial Lecture , 'Why we need to tear down the borders between science, design and art in a post-COVID world.'

The last 18 months have demonstrated the role of science, evidence and data in our daily lives. We’ve quickly developed new science literacy with terms such as contact tracing, flattening the curve and community transmission, and we’ve learnt to read data and become attuned to global trends.

Within this reframed world, universities provide an essential service as creators of knowledge, while museums, galleries and cultural institutions have a vital role to play in translating that knowledge.

Rose will draw on her experience working across both the museums and university sectors to explore how cultural institutions act as a conduit for knowledge, and how this helps breaks down the barriers that separate art and science.

This online event will be Auslan interpreted.

Organiser State Library Victoria

Organiser of 2021 Stephen Murray-Smith Memorial Lecture: Rose Hiscock

State Library Victoria is Australia’s oldest public library and a beautiful heritage building located in the heart of Melbourne. The Library’s distinctive spaces, from the 19th-century Ian Potter Queen’s Hall, to the contemporary theatrette are host to a diverse range of vibrant programming for all ages. Boasting beautiful surrounds, the Library is a welcoming place to languish on the lawn, play a game of giant chess or take in a pop-up event on the forecourt. Free exhibitions line the balconies of the majestic domed reading room; see Ned Kelly's armour and Jerilderie letter, Burke and Wills relics and a host of other treasures.

Enjoy books, music, newspapers, and free wi-fi and lockers.

Open daily, with a cafe and bookshop onsite.
