Some very interesting conversations at an Imperial College forum which I spoke at recently, along with Ken Arnold and Tristram Hunt, exploring how museums and arts practice can benefit science research culture. It was followed by a workshop I developed using drawing and text to tease out some of the discussions further. It went really well and we had some wonderfully animated and lively conversations, as well as some lovely drawings!

It was all part of The Good Science Project led by Dr Stephen Webster, and evolved out of the conference ‘Day of Doubt’ last Sept – video below – where I spoke about the role of doubt in art practice and Sir Paul Nurse, CEO of Francis Crick Institute and Prof Ian Walmsley, Provost of Imperial College, discussed doubt in science practice.
