The Key to Creativity

Image: Name, Title, Description

Playwright, Elinore Siminovitch and molecular biologist, Lou Siminovitch had a marriage that beautifully symbolized the bond between arts and sciences. They understood first hand how both fields were in pursuit of the mysteries of human existence.

Join us for a conversation led by some of Canada’s top theatre-makers and scientific minds that will explore what scientists can learn from artists, what artists can learn from scientists and how the union of the two is a key to creativity.
