Creative Reactions, part of the Pint of Science festival, comes to Manchester 14-16 May at The Old Abbey Taphouse! 

These events are three nights of exciting SciArt, as the festival pairs up artists and scientists to explore research in new ways.

Tickets are £4 and available to purchase here

Events programme:

Monday 14th May - By The Sounds of things....
Hear ye! Traverse the boundaries of sound and sight, with a talk on converting images to soundwaves, and exhibitions where you visualise music and see 3D bacterial sculptures! Learn about 3D sound and acoustics design for VR (headset included!). If chemistry is more your thing, stick around for a fizzing finale set to the tune of the aptly-chosen “Blue Monday”.

Tuesday 15th May - What a mouthfull!
This night will celebrate all things mouthy! Starting with taste, we will explore the art of beer-making, visiting brewing methods through the ages. Moving on to communication, a fantastic art installation by an MMU student forms the centrepiece for a discussion on the language of hard science vs. “pseudo-science”. Lastly, hear just how poetic science can be, with a mini science-poetry workshop

Wednesday 16th May - Through tinted Lenses 
Our sensation spectaculaire series ends with a night all about sight! Looking back in history, we will trace the developments in imaging dinosaurs, and see how prehistoric men and cave drawings were influenced by acoustics. With an accompanying art piece we will find out how dementia patients sees the world. 3D bacterial sculptures will be back, together with a light perception camera obscura box!

All three nights - Doors 18:30, Event 19:00-22:00

Venue address: Old Abbey Taphouse, Guildhall Cl, Manchester, M15 6SY
