An afternoon exploring, facilitating and initiating collaborations between scientists, artists, creatives, academics and curious organisms of all varieties. We will be investigating public engagement opportunities across biomedical, health & wellbeing sectors, debating their value and hopefully fostering some new collaborative projects.
Leading the afternoon is Charlotte Jarvis, an artist who collaborates with scientists and lectures at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College. Charlotte has seen her own heart beat outside of her body, grown her own cancer in a dish and recorded music onto DNA.
We we also be joined by Dr Jonathan Mueller (Research Fellow in the Centre for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at the University of Birmingham) and artist John Gage who will talk about their own collaborative project, providing attendees insight into what it takes to get interdisciplinary public engagement off the ground.
You’ll have the chance to ask questions as well as work on a collaborative public engagement proposal that can be put forward for potential funding, as part of a dedicated funding pot we have set aside for this event. BOOK FREE TICKETS HERE
