Light is the stuff of magic, but it’s so ubiquitous we can take it for granted. Although the sun is our source of energy, the light that it produces has huge impacts on us far beyond the functional. Join us for a long weekend of performance, discussions, installations and walks that illuminate our complex human relationship with light. Along with bacteriologists, historians, artists and architects, we’ll explore the cultural and scientific importance of light.

'On Light' sees UCL collaborating with the Wellcome Collection on an eclectic weekender of activities and events. UCL based activities will take place on Saturday 2 May from 1 to 5 pm on Malet Place, including an open afternoon at the Institute of Making, and 'The Cabinet' presented by UCL Museums and Collections. Events will be taking place at the Wellcome Collection from Friday 1 May through to Monday 4 May.

Some activities will be ticketed, check the Wellcome Collection website at the start of April for full details.
