FoodHavk: Shrooming the Technos and Materia Medica meets CurArtive

October 26, 2015

Join us in the Study at Manchester Museum on Thursday 29 October for two evening events, part of the Manchester Science Festival.

Materia Medica meets CurArtive

Several modern medicines have been derived, developed and synthesised from unlikely organic material. This evening challenges preconceptions about modern pharmaceuticals; and questions our relationship with both ‘big pharma’ and natural remedies. Artist Lucy Burscough will be on hand to share her process and you’ll be able to see her paintings of patients also on display within the Central Manchester NHS Trust. Drop by to the Study to meet people behind the project, museum objects from the Museum of Medicine and from the Manchester’s Museums material medica collections, take part in needle felting or just enjoy a drink.

Food Hack: Shrooming the Techno

The Biospheric Studio has developed the first hyperlocal mushroom farm in Manchester, supplying some of the best restaurants in the city. Are you a great north-west based technologist? Come and break the rules with us and rethink the way we can integrate ecology and technology to produce food in the future.
