Artistic inspiration and innovative scientific practice

Discover how the arts can inspire and innovate scientific practice, and vice versa. In musical and poetic performances, artists react to lectures by Tilburg University scholars  Piia Varis ('Conspiracy Theories') and Suzanne van der Beek (Pilgrim Stories) on their research. Word wizards Joshua Baumgarten and Marthe van Bronkhorst, Karlijn Vlaardingerbroek and Tilburg University Campus Poet Michiel Bakker are on duty. Pilgrim Diana Cotteleer will present a performance. A musical interpretation of, and reaction to the academic disciplines will be provided by violinist Max Swagemakers, who will also do an improvisation with poet Nick J. Swarth. Word wizard Daan Taks will be the presenter.

On its Dutch website, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) states that knowledge and creativity are the most important ingredients for well-being and prosperity. This exciting program will be a delightful mix of these ingredients.
