Creative Reactions Vertical Logo

Creative Reactions is a part of the Pint of Science festival that brings together artists and scientists to showcase research in a creative way, to explore different ways of looking at science and to create something new. In the beginning of the year, we were busy planning an exhibition to showcase art and science collaborations in Nottingham. Since then, we have all seen that things do not always go as planned.

But Pint of Science goes on, and so does Creative Reactions. A brilliant online exhibition has been put together by the teams in Reading, Cambridge and York and can be found here.

In Nottingham, our team have focused on the artists and scientists behind the collaborations. Who are they, how do they work and what does the process of these collaborations look like?

Over the next 3 weeks, we will be showcasing different examples of art-science collaborations. Some pieces were made specifically for this year’s online event and others were part of previous Creative Reactions exhibitions, or collaborations outside of Pint of Science. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7th-23th September, we will feature a new blog post about the artwork, the science and the people behind it.

All those examples make you want to try some sci-art yourself? There will be a chance to get creative yourself, too. We don’t want to give too much away, but keep your pencils sharpened and look out for our posts!

Once posted, you will find all blogs tagged with Creative Reactions Nottingham and on social media @creativerxns on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Towards the end of the exhibition period, it would really help us if you could take a few minutes to give us feedback. This way we can do better next year! Give feedback

We hope you enjoy this year’s Pint of Science and Creative Reactions!
