Arts and Science Festival

PAST EVENT - 16-23 March, University of Birmingham


Now in its second year, the Arts & Science Festival is a week-long celebration of ideas, research and collaboration across the University of Birmingham campus.


Life & Death:

This year event organisers were invited to respond to the theme of 'Life & Death' and we have been overwhelmed with the wide-ranging perspectives from which this theme has been approached - from Professor Alice Roberts' exhibition and talk exploring The Art of Anatomy to Professor Carl Chinn's lecture inhabiting Life and Death in Back-Street Birmingham – there's something for everyone.
