Changing Perspectives

4 April 2011, 4.00 PM - 4 April 2011, 4.00 PM

Free public events throughout March and April 2011
changing perspectivesThe University of Bristol is running a series of free public events throughout March and April 2011 that connect art and science.

Changing Perspectives is a series of free public exhibitions, talks, workshops and performances that explores the fascinating connections between art and science.  We’ll be seeing what happens when fiction meets cell biology, when chaotic systems meet crochet and when medicine meets art.  We invite you to participate and share your views with academics, students and artists.  

The talks accompany two exhibitions – one focusing on the life sciences and medicine at the Grant Bradley Gallery, Bedminster, and one on the physical sciences at the Bristol Gallery.  Other talks and events coming up in the series include “Inspired engineering”, “Manipulating biologies” and a science-inspired fiction open mic night.  Check the website for more details or follow them on Twitter for a new, provocative perspective every day in March – CPE_Bristol #chngpersp.

The next event is The 100-year hunt for Red Sprites - a talk by Peter McLeish about the upper atmospheric optical phenomenon associated with thunderstorms that is recently documented using low level television. It is a special Physics Colloquium, but is open to members of the public, students and staff.

Tyndall Lecture Theatre, Department of Physics, Tyndall Avenue, Bristol BS8 1TL
