In this article the authors discuss facilitation as a way to develop creative equality in art-science based on their experiences working on an art-science project. They suggest that the space in which representatives from the domains of sciences and arts come together to collaborate is a trading zone in which novel links and relationships can be created. They introduce the notion of “boundary method” to describe facilitation as a method that can endure different meaning-making strategies and meanings employed by stakeholders yet still retain its utility for encouraging creativity at a cross-disciplinary interface rather than within a dominant discipline.
