Join us for a free evening of conversation and fresh perspectives,
as we continue to explore the ethical questions around editing our DNA.

Hear from special guests Esther Fox, a visual artist who created the film Lost Voices for our Cut + Paste exhibition, and Dr Lara Choksey, who works on modern and contemporary literature at UCL. They'll explore questions like - what does genome editing mean to those living with genetic conditions? Are we editing society? And what is ‘eugenic logic’ and its relevance in science today?

  • Followed by Q&A session & creative break-outs.
  • Plus ones and groups welcome.
  • BSL tour of the Cut + Paste exhibition 16:30 - 17:30. Email us to book if interested.
