Time: 13:00-14:00


Who generates knowledge and where? Who gets to access that knowledge and how? Should science communication be asking more questions of science itself? What if we dismantle institutional narratives of science and experiment with our practice? Looking through the lens of a science centre transforming its place in the world, we explore questions and provocations to start a new decade.
