Join us on 28th November to enjoy this unique performance - open to everyone and no need to book!

The original Connections event, in partnership with AstraZeneca, brought together scientists, poets, school children, students and the general public in a one-off inter-disciplinary event. During this thought-provoking and moving event, held in October 2019, 8 scientist-poet pairs presented their poems and the scientific research the poems were based on. Following the success of the first event, on 18th July 2020, everyone had the opportunity to watch and listen online as the 8 pairs re-presented their work.

On 28th November at 2pm, Lucy Cavendish College invite you to join us once again for:

Connections: science, poetry and the pandemic

5 scientists will join 5 poets to work together to create a poem that reflects their research during the pandemic. Their work will reflect how people adapted and how it affected their work and wellbeing.
