The creative minds behind Natural Discourse: Artists, Architects, Scientists and Poets in the Garden present a diverse group of speakers who will address questions about how man's invention and interpretation of nature has influenced their practice.

This one-day symposium brings together creative minds from disciplines within the humanities, sciences and arts to reflect on the lively relationship between plants and humans. Speakers will discuss how the study of plants inspires material and conceptual innovations in their practices in ethnobotanical studies, stem cell research, architecture and visual art. The symposium compliments the exhibition Natural Discourse: Artists, Architects, Scientists & Poets in the Garden currently on view throughout the UCBG through 20 January 2013.
