Communicating with plants in the future

Can we communicate with plants by drawing on First Nations knowledge and futuristic biotechnologies? This question will be explored in an event at Sydney’s Carriageworks for National Science Week 2022.

Communicating with Plants: Exploring how First Nations perspectives intersect with futuristic biotechnologies will be a panel discussion co-presented by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Synthetic Biology.

It will feature Henrietta Baird, an award-winning artist and Kuku Yalanji woman, and Macquarie University’s Professor Sakkie Pretorius, a pioneer in molecular biology, in a conversation moderated by the Centre’s designer-in-residence Jestin George, co-founder and editor of SYNTHESIS magazine.
