Humanity Needs Dreamers
Physicist, Nobel Prize Winner
In honor of Curie's 150th birthday, experience a preview screening of the new immersive science film Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit With Marie Curie.
Written and performed by former engineer & living history scholar Susan Marie Frontczak, Humanity Needs Dreamers presents a first-hand look at Curie's early life in Poland through her groundbreaking research in France. Filmmaker Jen Myronuk will lead a post-screening Q & A with the performer live via Skype followed by trivia with prizes in celebration of Curie's 150th birthday, including an edible elements birthday cake.
We'll be joined by Holly Million, Founder of Artists United, on the global need for artists and scientists to collaborate plus ideas for bringing science stories to the stage.
