The Francis Crick Institute is a world class centre for biomedical research that will be opening soon the in King's Cross area of London. It is a partnership between Cancer Research UK, the Medical Research Council, the Wellcome Trust, University College London (UCL), King's College London and Imperial College London.
The Crick will have a regular programme of exhibitions, which will be open to the public and held in the Manby Gallery within our new building. Our first pilot exhibition, titled How do we look?, will examine ways in which scientists visualise their research, from microscopy techniques to computer aided design, and will showcase some of the cutting-edge research currently being undertaken by Crick scientists. It will feature 10 images and films generated by Crick researchers.
To coincide with How do we look?, the Crick's Public Engagement team is looking to deliver a programme of engaging and creative workshops for local community and public audiences. It is envisaged the workshops will take inspiration from the exhibition, by relating to imaging tools used in biomedical research and highlighting the importance of creativity in scientific discovery. They will thereby engage audiences with at least one aspect of the exhibition, bring the community together, and draw links between creativity, art and science.
