The Storm exhibition and symposium is produced by a University of Melbourne partnership program between the School of Biomedical Sciences and the Victorian College of the Arts. The partnership provides a platform to foster continuing dialogue and collaborations between artists and scientists and facilitate cross-disciplinary research and learning with focused public outcomes.
