The II International Art & Science Workshop follows the debates of its first edition, in Rio de Janeiro and Duque de Caxias in 2017. Workshop I brought together researchers and professionals working on the theme in Brazil and abroad, and consolidated a discussion forum on the interaction among Geosciences, Art and Environment.

The landscape, which is dynamic and perceived as a set of variables that defines its sustainability, changes over time into new meanings and uses, caused by natural processes and by human beings. Human activity appropriates mineral resources, or natural beauty itself, to develop economic, social and cultural activities. The proposal for Workshop II is a reflection from the fields of Geosciences and Art, in its environmental and artistic aspects, that discusses the resilience and conservation of the landscape, regarding natural risks, anthropogenic action and related issues.
