200 Years of Frankenstein: It's Alive

200 years of frankenstein

The Weston Library is open late from 7 - 10pm with hands-on activities, a Living Library of friendly experts, an exhibition and a talk. Your ticket gives you free access to all activities.

Start from Mary Shelley’s handwritten draft of Frankenstein, then manipulate life in a virtual reality embryonic experiment. Grind up ancient genetic modifications with archaeologists or learn how to stitch a repair in sheepskin parchment. See the real components of life on the nanoscale, make pages of a collaborative Frankenzine, or start a conversation with a real life book in the Living Library. Discover 1818 + 200: it’s alive!

This is a free event, but you must book a ticket to be able to participate in the activities here.
