The University of Westminster’s Broad Vision project presents an exhibition of imagined futures and possible human evolutions. Integrating art and science, Future Human plays with the possible, the probable and the implausible through a collection of interdisciplinary artworks, experiments and speculative designs – the result of what happens when a group of curious and questioning students ask ‘What if…?’
Broad Vision’s Heather Barnett and Silke Lange are contributing to a panel discussion on art/science education on Tuesday 8 April, 7-9pm, at GV art gallery.
There are a few places left, RSVP: email@example.com.

Write up, by Jo Keogh, of the Broad Vision interdisciplinary learning seminar held at University of Westminster on 20 November 2013.
“The exciting element of the Broad Vision project is that it allows artists and scientists to have a truly organic and original collaboration… The richness of the project stems from the continual conversation from start to finish and, from hearing the accounts of participating students, this has not only been inspiring and dynamic, it has been practice changing.”
