In addition to extraordinary speakers and intellectually stimulating presentation sessions in the connections of mathematics, science, and the arts, the 2009 conference also offers the following events:

Workshops for Creativity and Learning

As well as the normal lecture-type presentations, the Bridges conference also includes longer workshop sessions. These provide participants with opportunities to engage in some practical activities, which they can go on to use or develop, as artists, classroom practitioners, or leaders of their own workshops.

Visual Art Exhibit

The Conference will be complemented by an exhibit of mathematical art. There are opportunities for participants and contributors to show their work in the exhibition. See the link at left.

Music Night -- July 28, 8:15 PM

Theater Night -- July 29, 8:15 PM
