As Part 1 of the workshop track “Integrating Arts & Humanities,” this session introduces recent efforts at VCR to expand arts and humanities integration with site science and then invites open discussion from participants about other forms of environmental science-arts-humanities (eSAH) integration. Organized on the Conservatory format of eSAH at the VCR, this workshop opens by listening to data sonifications and related ecoacoustic compositions. It then describes how music-based methods have catalyzed new science research at the VCR, as well as complementary projects on coastal change from ethics, history, and literature. The collective work has led to new forms of public engagement and institutional collaboration. Critical reflection on challenges of integrative research at the VCR then sets the stage for open discussion on experiences, models, methods, and objectives for eSAH work across the LTER network.
