Creativity, genius, Shakespeare and science

Shakespeare Lives in Science

As part of our global Shakespeare Lives programme, we recently hosted a panel debate between scientists, performance artists and the public about creativity, genius, imagination and lies, inspired by the work of William Shakespeare. 

The debate, held in the Netherlands,  was moderated by UK science communicator, and expert in molecular biology and genetics, Emily Grossman.

The panel included Henning Tiemeier, professor of Psychiatric Epidemiology, Eldridge Labinjo, theater director, Jasper Swierstra, PhD student in Microbiology and Florence Atrafi, PhD student in Medical oncology.

Shakespeare Lives is a global programme celebrating Shakespeare’s work, to mark the 400th anniversary of his death.
