Under the Lens, an online event and an open air exhibition - part of the Being Human festival

Whether it’s under the lens of a microscope, camera, or magnifying glass, this event explores how humanities and sciences continue to work together, and how arts still contributes as we move into this new remote and restricted world

In partnership with Fusion Arts, we have collaborated with local schoolchildren to make images of their new world around them on photographic paper out in the open. As we share prizes for the school children, Professor Wes Williams will lead the celebration event with humanities researchers, as we look at the new ways of approaching this new ‘lens-led’ world we find ourselves in. Historians and linguists share with us their knowledge of previous ‘lockdowns’ and how the historical lens can be used to inform our current situation.
