PROJECT OVERVIEW

Underlying many contemporary tensions and issues in our country are our own unexamined biases. Though unavoidable, these biases pose challenges to progress across political, personal, and professional domains.

By learning to navigate them within ourselves and educating others on the role of bias in society, we can collectively learn to wield them more wisely and promote proper education for future generations.

To engage potential change agents with these ideas and facilitate self-reflection and action, we believe it is essential to incorporate an emotive, experiential medium. With this in mind, we designed a one-night Art Show & Science Exhibit, entitled, “It’s Only Human: Exploring the Biases that Shape Our World”.

The exhibits for this event will subsequently be compiled into a hardcover and e-book. In addition to general sales, these books will be freely distributed to teachers and trainers nationwide as a resource for introducing their students to their own biases. 

All proceeds will benefit the work of The People’s Science. As such, all donations made to support this event are tax deductible.

ORGANIZATION OVERVIEW

The People’s Science is a 501(c)3 non-profit that started as a collaboration between educators and researchers at Harvard Graduate School of Education and Stanford University. The mission of The People’s Science is to improve access to high quality and accessible science, and to foster people’s understanding of themselves, others, and information. Towards this end, we develop and share practical STEM engagement tools and resources that promote digital, media, scientific, and psychological literacy.

We believe that STEM education and 21st century information literacy is critical to a healthy society. We also aim to dismantle the barriers between science, society, and the individual by curating an experience where scientists, educators, and artists collaborate to bring attention to the research that's relevant to our daily lives.
