WCAIR launches latest LifeSpace exhibition to celebrate World NTD day

Over the last 18 months we have joined forces with the Dundee Print Collective exchanging ideas and exploring the question “What is the difference between a scientist and an artist?”

Art by John Post and Sandra Carvalho

The result is ‘Translations‘ the latest show in School of Life Sciences Science Art Research Gallery, LifeSpace.  The pieces on display are the result of a creative journey undertaken by both the scientists and the artists to co-create work that reflects their work, passions and own journeys. The artworks are truly collaborative projects created through sharing each others usually separate worlds and realising how much they actually share in common.

We were thrilled to be joined by so many people last night (30 Jan) as we held the exhibition preview to coincide with the first World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day, #beatNTDs. the day marked the 8th anniversary of the 2012 London deceleration to eliminate NTDs . Over 300 partners have signed up to promote the work we all do from discovery research through drug discovery and public health campaigns to eliminate diseases which put 1.5 billion people at risk of preventable and treatable diseases.

Translations: from laboratory to print studio  is open to view on Saturdays 11am-5pm until 25 April. How to find LifeSpace.

The art on show has been created by: Sandra Carvalho, Irene Hallyburton, Scott Hudson, Amy Jones and John Post.
