In this workshop members of the group HONF teach science through an artistic approach in order to demonstrate that science doesn’t have to be expensive, dangerous or inaccessible nor only possible with a lab. Participants will learn how to make their own slant culture, colour it with natural dyes and make a test tube rack from paper. At the end everyone is invited to take their slant culture home and pass on the experience, technique and culture to others.

Science does not have to be costly, dangerous and inaccessible. Nor does one need a lab to get active; the workshop series ART IN CULTURE demonstrates alternatives. ART IN CULTURE is a workshop series under the umbrella of Intelligent Bacteria, a collaborative research programme between HONF and a scientist community from the University of Gajah Mada (UGM), Yogyarkarta, and consequently follows its guiding principle: to bridge the practice, theories and innovative ideas from the fields of art and science and apply this based on generic infrastructure and affordable technologies. In the workshop ART IN CULTURE members of HONF will teach the job of a scientist through an artistic approach, by making a slant culture coloured with natural dyes. The participants are free to choose their colour for the slant culture and will also be taught how to make the test tube rack from paper.


The workshop is aimed at novices and specialists alike with interest in any field. Afterwards, everyone is invited to take his or her slant culture home in order to pass on the experience, technique and culture to another person.
