You’re invited to Lab Live: Sci-Art, a festival where science meets art.
At Lab Live: Sci-Art, we’re exploring how science and art meet for creative and innovative outcomes. You can explore a host of creator, maker and artist stalls to tinker and experiment in the Imagination Lab and our 12,000 sq ft warehouse space, the Engine Hall.
There are five zones at the event which explore different themes mixing art and science. Take a look at the highlight activities:
The Lab is being transformed into a DaVinci-inspired workshop, a place of invention and making!
