Arts & Science Festival FREE


The University of Birmingham’s Arts & Science Festival is a week-long celebration of ideas, research and collaboration across campus.

This year event organisers were invited to respond to the theme of ‘Life & Death’ and have approached this theme from wide-ranging perspectives - from Professor Alice Roberts’ exhibition and talk exploring The Art of Anatomy to Professor Carl Chinn’s lecture inhabiting Life and Death in Back-Street Birmingham – there’s something for everyone.

At the heart of the festival programme lies 'Conversation Pieces', an interdisciplinary series of talks which brings together leading academics, artists and scientists. Working in partnership with Eastside Projects, we're delighted to welcome Turner prize winning artist Susan Philipsz, who will talk about her sound-based works which cross the boundaries between art and science, and Scottish artist Bill Drummond who joins us for a special lecture exploring the 'Life and Death of an Artist'.
