This spring, Science Gallery London presents The Living Room: a place where you can take a break to connect with new ideas presented by the gallery’s network of collaborating researchers, students, artists and community groups.
The season will include a series of takeovers, including zine launches, crafting sessions, discussion groups and more. Drop in and be part of the conversation!
King's College London Students' Union: Stories of Her-Hood
Taking place throughout Women’s History Month, Stories of Her-Hood welcomes visitors to engage with what it means to be a woman in different ways. It celebrates the diversity of the female experience, sharing information with visitors on aspects of female health which are seldom spoken about, and seeks to encourage change for the future.
It has three core aims to Celebrate, Educate, and Reflect by addressing four themes:
Identity | Choice | Health | Reflect on Respect
Each of these aims is centred around a question, which you are invited to discover as you explore the exhibition. This approach seeks to make it interactive, such that visitors are led to reflect on what we have learnt from the past, in order to think about the future they would like to see.
Open from Tuesday 21 March - Saturday 1 April 2023
Health and Social Equity Collective Takeover
Until 18 March, The Living Room features a takeover from Science Gallery London’s resident research group, the Health and Social Equity Collective. The Collective consists of researchers, community leaders, policymakers, and health professionals responding to persistent social and health inequities, with a core team based within the Health Inequalities Research Group at King’s. The Collective invite you to visit The Living Room; listen to their curated podcasts, share your experiences of healthcare and consider how this may change in the future.
Other opportunities ahead at The Living Room include crafting sessions with King’s Student Union Crochet and Knit Society, Stories of Her-Hood as part of Women’s History Month and more.
The space, located on the ground floor of the gallery, features botanical sculptures by artist Caroline Byrne, inspired by a range of flowering plants. The sculptures form part of a collection of ‘Brazen Botany’ grown out of lockdown and serve as a colourful prompt of the revitalising powers of nature.
Open Tuesday – Saturday, 10.00 – 17.30.
