When:
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  l.lyons@qmul.ac.uk
PLEASE SPECIFY if you would like to book a space for MORNING or AFTERNOON workshop.
