Energy Futures interview series

15 Oct 2015

Manchester Science Festival events celebrate our Rutherford’s Garden arts and sciences collaborations

As part of the Rutherford’s Garden arts/sciences collaborations research project commissioned by the University, artist and curator James Brady is conducting a series of one-to-one interviews with notable North West based researchers in the sciences and humanities.

The broad theme is ‘Energy Futures’ and he will be talking to each person about their work and, in a wider context, their professional and personal positions on nuclear, fossil, and renewable energy.

These interviews will be held in public at The Study, The Manchester Museum’s new research centre, during the Manchester Science Festival in October.

The events are free and public are welcome to drop-in and listen.

As a legacy, each interview will be recorded and subsequently made available online as a public resource.
