Zoetropes of Discovery: an art and science workshop
9 September 2017
Location: The Francis Crick Institute

Inspired by The Francis Crick Institute's first major public exhibition, Open for Discovery, we're running a series of free art-science workshops that explore the world of scientific discovery.

Investigate how our scientists are re-thinking research to help shape the future of human health by making your very own handmade zoetrope, a device that changes multiple still images into an animation.

Led by award-winning Medical Artist Merlin Strangeway with the support of Crick researchers, the workshops are free to attend and open to adults and families. We recommend the workshops are suitable for children aged 6 and over.

Places are limited and must be booked in advance via Eventbrite

Open House London 2017
16 September 2017

The Crick is delighted to be participating in Open House, the capital's largest annual festival of architecture and design. Drop in anytime to sneak a peek at some original architectural models and meet our friendly staff. Our free exhibition, Open for Discovery, and the Crick Café will be open as usual.

Crick Chat: Cancer - the big picture
20 October 2017
Location: The Francis Crick Institute

Cancer is caused by changes in genes. But studying individual genes isn't enough to fully understand the disease. Join Francesca Ciccarelli, who runs a lab at the Francis Crick Institute, and James Spicer, a clinician from King's College London, as they discuss how their approaches to studying the whole genome, or 'the big picture', are leading to new insights into cancer.

Crick Chats are relaxed and friendly evening events that bring you face-to-face with researchers working at the Francis Crick Institute and our partner organisations.

Hear about their work, ask a burning question, or just enjoy a chat; Crick Chats are free and open to all. No knowledge of science is required.

Free but booking required.

This event is being held as part of Bloomsbury Festival, a five-day celebration of the area's pioneering creativity.
