Description

Let’s talk science and religion over coffee or a beer!

Priming the Pump: Exploring Intersections of Science and Faith

What does empathy have to do with science and faith? We know that empathy is a critical component of collaborative relationships and productive conversations. In this interactive listening session, we will start by exploring shared values and decide on our focus for future conversations.

You'll have a chance to participate in fun activities from applied improvisational theatre (AIT) to help us explore shared values and common goals. In addition, we will provide data and research about the importance of engaging the public in conversations around science and faith (from both policy and ethical perspectives).

All backgrounds, faiths, traditions, and practices welcome! Bring your authentic self to this dynamic, fun, and inclusive event.

This event is the first of six conversations supported by the IU Consortium for the Study of Religion, Ethics, and Society focused on encouraging productive conversations between scientists and faith communities.

PRESENTED BY

IUPUI/IU School of Medicine Communicating Science Program; The daVinci Pursuit; Center for Interfaith Cooperation; March for Science Indiana; and IU Consortium for the Study of Religion, Ethics, and Society.
