LifeSpace invites you to a family-friendly drop-in craft session on Saturday 4 July from 2 to 4pm. Make pompoms, decorate your own badge, try out the patterns for knitting microbes. Children welcome.

Visitors will also be able to visit the ongoing Transmissions exhibition.

Transmissions: Exploring the Microbial World is an exhibition that explores the microbial world and the implications of human co-existence with microbial life. The exhibition features work by artists who have collaborated with scientists to consider representations of microbial life, the global impact of microbial diseases and the evolution of antimicrobial resistance.

Transmissions brings to Dundee recent art works by Mark Doyle, Jo Hodges & Robbie Coleman and Anne Milne, made as a result of a residency programme at the Centre for Immunity, Infection and Evolution at the University of Edinburgh supported by ASCUS Art & Science. Alongside these works of art, the exhibition includes historical artefacts brought together from the Museum Collections and the Archives at the University of Dundee and a selection of current research being conducted at the University of Dundee and the University of Edinburgh in this area.

Transmissions is supported by the Medicines for Malaria Venture and is a partnership between LifeSpace: Science Art Research Gallery and ASCUS Art & Science with the Centre for Immunity, Infection and Evolution at the University of Edinburgh.
