Science New Wave - The Movement
The Science New Wave was established on August 26, 2016 in Lairoux, a commune in the Vendée department on the west coast of France.

It was initially mapped out by a committee of scientists and artists attending a town hall meeting on the devastating impact of human activity on the local bat population.

The Central Dogma have since evolved but kept faithful to these essential traits:
Culture is Science. Science is Culture
Diversity Feeds the Ecosystem
Experiments Become Cinema
Structure Dictates Function
Science and Story Never Collide.
We Are All Messengers
The festival theme is RESISTANCE
We are constantly pushing for change and shaking up the status quo. We think of resistance as the act of resisting from the micro to the macro level. What does it mean to withstand opposing forces that sometimes feel overwhelming? How does resistance measure a material's ability to resist the flow of electrons through it? How do organisms resist harmful influences such as disease, toxic agents, or infection?
