Pint of Science comes to Salisbury!

We are very excited to be invited to speak at this years Pint of Science in Salisbury this May.

Pint of Science is a worldwide science festival which brings researchers to your local pub/cafe/space to share their scientific discoveries with you – no prior knowledge required.

Join Well City Salisbury to see how they are using the arts to improve the mental health of locals, and learn about nature and conservation of Porton Down’s Stone Curlew bird population, and hear how global interconnectedness is achieved.

We will be exploring and discussing the impact of creativity on individuals and the power this has on a community led with one of our experienced Well-City Salisbury artists, Sue Martin.

Pint of Science returns 13-15 May 2024 and Well-City Salisbury will be talking at The Winchester Gate on the 15 May.
