    This report assesses the potential for collaboration in New York State between the arts and field stations: places and programs where scientific researchers conduct long-term studies of diverse ecosystems. It provides an overview of how and where this transdisciplinary work is currently taking place, and makes recommendations to advance this effort across the state. It seeks to encourage further opportunities for artists that, when combined with environmental research, can aid community development and quality of life by advancing awareness of social-ecological systems: how people use, perceive, and shape our environment. This project itself is a reflection of the benefits of such collaborations. It is a partnership between Harvestworks, a NYC-based media arts organization, and the New York City Urban Field Station, which advances research, environmental stewardship, and ecological literacy to improve well-being in New York City and many other urban areas, cities, towns, and regions. The project was made possible by a generous grant from New York State’s Regional Economic Development Council.
