Cross-disciplinary collaborations lead to the generation of new scientific ideas and approaches, the creation of novel and cutting-edge projects, and innovation within and between fields. Fostering cross-disciplinarity impacts the mindsets and approaches of all involved, from faculty members at the top of their fields to undergraduate students who are the future of science and civil leadership. Our mission is to cultivate a meaningful, equitable, and multidisciplinary community through an entirely virtual environment that expands the impact of cutting-edge research through art. This community provides an invaluable opportunity to develop skill sets in science communication and outreach applicable across all career stages.
