Art-science workshops: (de)constructing patterns and poems

13 June 2018

Location: The Francis Crick Institute, 1 Midland Road, London, NW1 1AT

Time: 19:00 - 21:00

FREE - booking required. Suitable for adults.

Poetry adults

Inspired by our current exhibition, Deconstructing Patterns, we're running a series of free poetry workshops that explore the spectrum of science and patterns studied by researchers at the Crick.

Delve deeper into the intricate patterns and themes featured in the exhibition and use them to write new, surprising and revealing poems in this interdisciplinary art-science workshop.

Join poet Simon Barraclough and Crick researchers to reflect on our connections to science and create your own poems inspired by the biological and social themes that run through the exhibition. Raid the gallery for inspiration and explore the light and the dark within.

These workshops are most suitable for adults. We will be running family workshops on a similar theme during half term on 30th May and 1st June. 

Places are limited and must be booked in advance via Eventbrite


These workshops were developed by  Poet in the City, an arts organisation that promotes a love of poetry to new audiences through live events, projects, commissions and participation.
