Artists have contributed to our understanding of astronomy, geology, the human body, and the complexities of molecular structures as well as the quest for new medicines. They have recorded the diversity of the world’s flora and fauna and are involved in the appreciation and funding of efforts to preserve our struggling biodiversity.
Artists and scientists share a curiosity to understand the unknown. Join Professor Roy Burdon for a conversation about the unexpected intersection between art and science.

Tea & Talk Series
The Tea & Talk series invites everyone to enjoy a cup of tea while engaging with experts in a friendly, relaxed discussion. There won’t be any PowerPoints, notes, or formality here – just the chance to ask questions and to listen to some of Scotland’s leading authorities on a variety of subjects.
All Tea & Talk events will take place using Zoom Meetings so attendees can take part using audio and video. To encourage discussion and allow for everyone an opportunity to ask questions we have limited the number of spaces available.
THIS EVENT IS ONLY OPEN TO ATTENDEES AGED 16+
