Arts & Science Festival will return for its second year in 2014. Running Monday 17 – Friday 21 March 2014 the festival will be a lively programme showcasing culture, research and collaboration at the University through talks, exhibitions, performances, workshops and screenings.
This year event organisers were invited to respond to the theme of ‘Life & Death’ and we have been overwhelmed with the wide-ranging perspectives from which this theme has been approached - from Professor Alice Roberts’ exhibition and talk exploring The Art of Anatomy to Professor Carl Chinn’s lecture inhabiting Life and Death in Back-Street Birmingham – there’s something for everyone.
The festival programme is now online! Click here for online listings and here to download a PDF of the full festival brochure.
