King’s College London: Heads up! Shining a light on innovations in oral health
The mouth is a mirror of mind and mood. Beyond this, it is a gateway to a remarkable microbiome that shapes many of our sensory experiences, affecting self-esteem and influencing our quality of life.
This exhibition in the Arcade at Bush House showcases how art-science collaborations can illuminate the lived experience of patients and clinicians, bring new perspectives to researchers, and offer innovative approaches to student education. Although each of the projects are different, they all powerfully demonstrate how collaborative dialogue can invite multiple perspectives and shine a light on the fascinating world of craniofacial research – through and beyond the mouth.
A series of lunchtime creative workshops will run as part of the exhibition events programme over the first two weeks of December: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/events/series/heads-up
These are free and open to all, so if you’re interested in trying your hand at experimental drawing, tactile observation, playing with clay, or learning how to embroider, do sign up via Eventbrite!
Heads up! Shining a light on innovations in oral health is a collaboration between King’s College London’s Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences and the university’s Culture team.
