The Reconnect Art and Science project funded by BIS took the form of seven artists and University of Sheffield scientist collaborations. These collaborations gave rise to seven high quality art exhibits in the form of sculptures, interactive installations and photographic and sound installations that were exhibited along with easy to access scientific research interpretation panels on How the Body Works. Over 9 days touring three Sheffield community settings: conference centre attached to a primary school in Shiregreen; office and enterprise centre in Parson’s Cross and a sheltered housing scheme in Jordanthorpe. During the 9 day tour there was a daily programme of workshops and talks presented by University of Sheffield Science researchers.
