About (Q & A)
NatureVolve science art magazine was created to act as a platform for scientific researchers to communicate their research to broader audiences, and for creative thinkers to share their ideas.
This is through an online digital magazine, and an online blog. In the future, we have plans for the magazine to be released to the UK in print.
We believe that combining scientific thought with artistic expression can generate effective engagement with public audiences. We also believe there is a growing need for science and art to rekindle the harmonious relationship that was once seen during the early age of the Enlightenment. We would like to show that artists and scientists can support each other, and engage with the world while working in unison.
By sharing understandable scientific stories with the general public, and inspiring art, we hope that wider audiences can enjoy finding new ways of appreciating the natural world.
We are based in the United Kingdom (with a base in Aberdeen, Scotland).
However, our network is international, including researchers and artists from all corners of the globe.
