‘Now I have had my poster chosen I will definitely have to attend the festival!’ Charly quipped.

Southern Cross University visual communication lecturer Dr Louise Kolff said students responded ‘in so many different ways, producing wonderful posters for the Festival, while learning a lot about design principles along the way’.

Three exhibitions across Lismore will feature these posters leading up to the Arts Vs Science Festivalon Saturday August 18 at The Quad.

Posters will be exhibited at Southern Cross University Lismore Campus Library from August 20, and in the Lismore Regional Library from July 30. Then shortlisted posters will be featured in an exhibition on the day of the Festival in the Lismore Regional Gallery’s event space.

Cultivating the collaborations that form the core of The Quad and the Northern Rivers Science Hub, the Arts Vs Science Festival  offers something for everyone. Come discover a world where art meets science! The full program will be released soon.
