We promote convergence of diverse knowledge systems such as Arts, Science, Local and Indigenous Knowledge (ArtSLInK). It encompasses synchronous, equitable, co-productive engagement across the social and natural sciences, the arts and place-based local and Indigenous knowledge systems, each with their distinct modes of exploration and expression.
