QUESTION: What happens when worlds of science and literature combine and birth a universe of entertainment, education and poetic discovery?
Answer: See Further! The 10 day festival packed with cross-disciplinary collaborations between revolutionary science and inspiring artists.
We’re really looking forward to the Future Technologies Discussion. Writer, Broadcaster and Technophile Stephen Fry will be on a panel with Inventor of the World Wide Web Sir Tim Bernes-Lee, Leading Computer Scientist Professor Dame Wendy Hall and Technology Critic Bill Thompson. Witnessing these tech-trendsetters debate their hearts out over such a huge topic could be pretty interesting.
Award-winning writer Ben Goldacres Bad Science’ lecture will involve satirical criticisms inspired by a range of inaccuracies and misconceptions of scientific issues, which no doubt will be pretty engaging.
As if that wasn’t enough, Southbank Centre Artist in Residence Poet Lemn Sissay will perform six new works as well as pieces from the Royal Society archive. We’re excited about hearing his words fused with music and screen as they open our eyes to a new scientific exploration.
You can also get involved with our Science Buskers who will be performing experiments throughout the festival.
Curious? You should be. We await the arrival of science via poetry, talks and discussions! For more information about the See Further Festival, click here
