Poetry and science - call for participants

We are looking to pair up a selection of London-based scientists with local poets to develop a series of interdisciplinary performances. This is a really fun and engaging event that has previously been done in Edinburgh, Manchester, and Canterbury, and which has been of great benefit to both the poets and the researchers that have been involved.

Here is a video of the recent Edinburgh event, which should give you a good idea of the project:

In terms of commitment, you would need to keep the following dates and times free:

Training Session @ TBC (Central London) – Saturday 11th October; 11:00 – 15:00

Performance @ Springer Nature, N1 9XW – Monday 4th December; 20:00 – 21:30

If you would like to get involved, or if you have any questions then please do get in touch with Dr Sam Illingworth, Senior Lecturer in Science Communication, Manchester Metropolitan University.
