Medicine and Science communication event
An event of lectures, demonstrations and interactive activities which explored the role visualisation and computer modelling might play in future healthcare. Medical research experts gave talks and demonstrations about predictive medicine. What will late 21st century look like? Where are we on the path to personalised healthcare?
Participants were invited to reflect on how developments in medicine relate to them.I facilitated this enquiry through using art interpretation strategies to explore the body, health and identity.
