Shared Imagination - Art & Science Collaborations in Dundee

6 October, 9.30am – 4.30pm

This unique symposium celebrates 75 extraordinary years of the Wellcome Trust organised by Exhibitions at DJCAD and Wellcome Trust Centre Dundee at Life Sciences, University of Dundee.

The event brought together scientists, artists, designers and cultural practitioners to conceptualise the century-long transition from the city’s textiles past to its bio-research future and consider the ideal components needed for ways forward in genuine art and science collaborations.

Please see the base of this page for videos of the two key note presentations from Martha Fleming and Rob La Frenais.
