Create your own conference by attending one, a few or all six presentations, workshops and panels that have been carefully chosen and thoughtfully packaged to create “Arts and Science Connections: A Deconstructed Conference about Career Possibilities”.

“Wayfinding is the ancient art of figuring out where you are going when you don’t actually know your destination. For wayfinding, you need a compass, and you need a direction. Not a map – a direction … Wayfinding your life is similar. Since there’s no one destination in life, you can’t put your goal into your GPS and get the turn-by-turn directions for how to get there.”  - Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, Designing Your Life

Broaden your perspective and learn how to find your way and build your unique career path with a compass and a direction. No need for a map.

Thanks to the philanthropy of this conference's presenters and panellists, we are thrilled to have donated over $1500 to the Student Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund, an organization chosen for the important work they are doing to support students’ well-being through the challenges exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to continue growing this fund in future Arts and Science Conferences and would like to thank the presenters who generously contributed to this donation.
