Collaborating for greater impact

Any science researchers interested in working with artists and makers to enhance the impact of their research will find the next meeting of our public engagement network, Pepnet, useful.

Come and hear about projects associated with scientists, artists and makers.

We are pleased to be joined by Andrew Wilson from Superposition who will be showcasing previous work.  He'll be happy to speak to any researchers interested in collaborating with Superposition.

The meeting is on Wednesday 26 April from 12 noon to 2pm in Worsley 9.57 and includes lunch.

Please register via Eventbrite.

An example of Superposition’s work is a project entitled Archibio, which is a collaboration between artists, architects and scientists exploring architectural and biological structures from the macro to the nanoscale. Andrew will elaborate more at the meeting.

Researchers from the University who have worked with Superposition in the past include Lorna Dougan (Physics), Paul Beale (Chemistry) and Lars Jeuken (Biological Sciences).

Please do come along to see how you could be involved.

You'll also find out more about the next ASMbly Labs: pop up science labs aiming to generate new artworks and prototypes fast.  They are a hotbed of cross disciplinary collaborations. The next one will take place in summer 2017, in a city centre space in Leeds and there could be opportunities to take part or even run a public engagement stall activity at the event.

Any queries, please contact the PE team.
