Event description

Description

Canopy Ecologist Dr Jen Sanger and big tree photographer Steve Pearce are The Tree Projects. The Tree Projects use innovative film and photography technology, combined with advanced tree climbing techniques and the latest research methods, to raise awareness about the world's significant trees and forests.

Jen and Steve have built their careers in treetop science and photography, and the Tasmanian Tree Projects grabbed the world's attention with the publication of Steve's Gandalf’s Staff portrait in late 2016.

Jen and Steve will be speaking at BeakerStreet@TMAG about their incredible experiences climbing, researching, and documenting some of the tallest and most awe-inspiring trees in the world. Witness in ultra-high-resolution the tree in which they spent 17 days camped out documenting, and hear their unbelievable tales from their New Zealand and Tasmanian projects. Plus, they will reveal for the first time in Australia their latest major project based in Taiwan!

BeakerStreet@TMAG is a pop-up science bar at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, 18-20 August - admission is free. Join us during the second weekend of National Science Week for three packed nights of intriguing short talks and hands-on workshops, live music, SCINEMA short films, live anatomical body painting, a science photography exhibition, storytelling, Science in the Pub's "Women of Science" event, have a beer with a scientist, delicious local food and Tassie tipples, heaters and hot drinks in the courtyard, and much more! Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of this talk to get a drink and find a seat - talks will startly promptly at the advertised start time.

BeakerStreet@TMAG is free and open to the public but designed for an adult audience. Under-18s must be accompanied by an adult. Registration for talks is not required and does not guarantee a seat, but will be a great help to us (we're scientists and we like numbers). Registration for workshops is essential.
