Good news! UCL has received its public display licence from HTA and two workshops have been scheduled.
Drawing Parallels: Artistic Encounters with Pathology is a collaborative interdisciplinary research project between Barts Pathology Museum, QMUL and UCL Pathology Collections. We aim to survey the attitudes of medical specialist and non-medical specialist audiences towards preserved foetal and neonatal specimens.
UCL, Rock Room,
1st Floor corridor,
SATURDAY MAY 16th
MORNING WORKSHOP: 10:30 am – 12:30pm
AFTERNOON WORKSHOP: 2:30 – 4:30pm
Please note that spaces are limited.
Participants will see photographs, drawings and real specimens and engage with them through artistic methods. This is an opportunity for issues, concerns, opinions and ideas to be expressed and for specimens that have been hidden away or rarely used to have the chance to be seen.
We aim to provide a space where participants can discuss and engage with foetal and neonatal specimens.
By using this workshop to share opinions and engage with interesting specimens participants will help museums understand perceptions and reactions to the way specimens are maintained and displayed, improve how collections are used and promote the value of these unique specimens.
Light refreshments will be provided.
To RSVP your space please send your name and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE SPECIFY if you would like to book a space for MORNING or AFTERNOON workshop.
