What a Mouthful – 15 May
Celebrating everything with the mouth, including communication and taste, we will have Sam Illingworth from MMU coming to talk about poems written by scientists, and he will also give a poetry workshop where the audience will participate in. We will also have a speaker talk about the history of brewing and beer doctors (it’s a real thing!), and a talk exploring how “hard science” (like cancer research) uses words/phrases that is blurred with beliefs such as astrology.

Through Tinted Lenses – 16 May
This is a night all about sight and perception. We will have someone talk about cave paintings and how, in fact, the acoustics in the cave influences the painter themselves; we will then have a talk on how dementia patients perceive the world differently (with an accompanying art piece!), and to finish off, a brief history of how us as humans have visualised and recorded images of the world, and look into the future and cutting edge techniques that we’re developing to this end.
