Can science and art collaborate without 'dumbing down'? Does art go places that science can't? Could 'sci-art' work?

Should Science and Art be kept apart?

As theatre artists, we are working with surgeons to create A Bloodless Field.

Science bodies and funders tell us that ‘sci-art’ is a new medium. But does science or art gain by marriage?

Isn’t science equal but different to art? Does adding them up dumb them down? Or are 'science' and 'art' false categories?

Future Cities Founder Austin Williams invites you to challenge philosopher and Artscape founder Hilary Lawson, TLS literary critic Michael Caines, author DonMcRae, scientific playwright Jack Klaff and anthropologist and doctor Cecil Helman. Afterwards, Metal and Bone invite you to share conversation and a private evening view of the weird and beautiful Hunterian Museum.

£9.50 including a glass of wine. BOOKING LINE: 07985 746 143 OR AT WWW.METALANDBONE.ORG (EVENTS)
