Explore Human Limits @ Wellcome Collection

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Wellcome Collection.

Join a special symposium inspired by the Superhuman exhibition exploring the capabilities and possibilities of human bodies and minds.

Human Limits will open up discussion around our relationship with technology past and present drawing on science fiction and science fact, questioning our desire to explore new environments and imagining future humans.

It starts off sociably on Friday with an opportunity to explore the exhibition after hours, mingle over drinks and watch silent film 'Aelita: Queen of Mars', one of the first films to depict space travel, accompanied by a live band, Minima.

On Saturday a roster of top speakers talk about how science and medicine have changed the way we look at ourselves, the impact electricity has had on our lives, science fiction and space exploration, the implications and future possibilities for enhancing human bodies and whether cross-channel swimmers are, in fact, superhuman.

All this plus breaks for refreshments, networking, chit chat and lunch thrown in.

Human Limits is on Friday 28 September from 7-9.30pm and Saturday 29 September from 10.30am-5pm. Tickets £30 full price/£25 concessions for both days, including drinks on Friday evening and lunch, tea and coffee on Saturday. To book, please call 020 7611 2222.
