Public Engagement at the Festival of Science and Curiosity

We are pleased to be participating in the Festival of Science and Curiosity next month.

Our HOME:Zero project: Inspiring Children as Drivers for Change, will be inviting children (6-10 years) and their families to experience an art installation in the form of a fantastical, interactive world. Created in collaboration with the National Gallery, Nesta, Makers of Imaginary Worlds, Lakeside Arts, the Mixed Reality Lab and the Department of Architecture & Built Environment at the University of Nottingham, HOME:Zero art installation provides a magical starting point for discussion about climate change and making a sustainable difference in the home.

The aim of our research to inspire children as drivers for change, is to understand how an art installation impacts on attitudes towards fine art and painting, climate change and sustainability.  As part of this event there will be the opportunity to speak to researchers from the project.

HOME:Zero will be open to the public at on Saturday 11th & Tuesday 14th through to Saturday 18th February at Mansfield Museum.  Book your visit here.

Researchers from our hoRRIzon project team will also be in attendance to talk to visitors about work exploring responsible research and innovation along with colleagues from the Cobot Maker Space, who will be running Build Your Own Robot workshops.
