Imagine you’re on a lunar base, ready explore to the Moon. Your mission is to document a region of the Moon of your choice – maybe the Ocean of Storms, the Sea of Tranquility, the Peninsula of Thunder, or the Bay of Rainbows. What will you find there?

The Moon Mission workshop, led by Bettina Forget, inspires participants to dive into research, fire up their imagination, and experiment with new forms of expression to create a piece that bridges art and science using a range of materials.

Bettina Forget is a Montreal-based visual artist, gallery owner, art educator, and researcher. Her creative work focuses on space sciences, and has been exhibited in the USA, Canada, Germany, Iceland, Singapore, and Nicaragua. Forget is a researcher for the SETI Institute’s Artist-in-Residence program, investigating the translation of ideas between collaborating artists and scientists. In 2018, she joined the Convergence - Perceptions in Neuroscience Initiative as Director of Fine Art. She is also pursuing a Ph.D. in Art Education at Concordia University.
