#HerArtOpen is a pop-up celebration of the beautiful and diverse artists of the Hunter region. Over the past year, the showcase has toured Newcastle’s bars, pubs, galleries and museums, bringing female and non-binary identifying creatives into the spotlight where they belong. The concept is the brain-child of Alex Morris, poet and spoken word performance artist, and Chloe Warren, comedian and science communicator. Each event brings together open-mic performances with those of featured artists, who share their work and their journey through on-stage performances and Q&A sessions.
For Heart Open: Science Sesh, featured artists will be collaborating with local academics to develop unique science-inspired art works and performances.
