Arts + Design Wednesdays @ BAMPFA Becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable: realistic impossibilities to prepare ourselves for the future with Andrea Bandelli FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC Andrea Bandelli, CEO, Science Gallery International At times of great uncertainty and complex developments, our capacity to navigate through the unknown depends on how comfortable we are with what is different from us. How do we learn to shape our emotions and our reactions, to change our mindset and to take responsibility today over the future? The creative collisions of art, culture, science and design confront us with what it means to be inclusive and to accept diversity as a strength and not as a threat. --- Andrea Bandelli is the executive director of Science Gallery International. He has led, managed, directed and evaluated several international projects linked with science, art, democracy and public participation -- many in collaboration with Ecsite, the European network of science centers and museums. Bandelli has written widely on public engagement with science and he has recently completed his doctoral research on scientific citizenship and the role of public participation in science centers. --------- Arts + Design Wednesdays @ BAMPFA is a public lecture series embedded inside our Creative Gateway undergraduate course. Berkeley Arts + Design features, fortifies, and mobilizes existing excellence in the arts and design at Berkeley, while fostering dynamic collaboration, innovation, and public access across all arts and design fields, on campus and in public life.
