GNSI’s first virtual conference

Join us for The Guild of Natural Science Illustrators’ 2020 Virtual Conference!

Dates: Aug 8 & 9th, 2020

The GNSI’s first virtual conference offers an unprecedented opportunity to share our vibrant annual conference with a global audience. Our profession has been thrust into the spotlight as we illuminate complex information about virus transmission and safe practices that may save lives. Yet science itself is being questioned or misinterpreted to influence political agendas, and our institutions – schools, universities, museums, and parks – are scrambling to adapt to the uncertainty brought on by the pandemic. Our conference will present thought leaders and practitioners wrestling with this challenging new landscape and experimenting with different ways of doing science communication so that we may all learn and grow.
