Are you interested in hearing from national and international panelists as they discuss timely topics such as vaccine equity and access; research creation and creativity; and vaccine fear and misinformation?
Then you’ll want to make sure to watch the recorded webinars presented as part of Immune Nations exhibition, hosted throughout the fall by McMaster Museum of Art. Each webinar welcomed a range of panelists including artists, researchers, academics, and public health professions for a Q&A and roundtable discussion that addressed difficult topics and the role that art can play on public perception and discourse around vaccines.
Presented live on Zoom, the webinar recordings are now available McMaster Museum of Art’s YouTube channel. Click the links below to watch the recordings!
