The Dana Centre marks a new direction in science communication: to challenge public perception and tackle contemporary science head on. This dynamic events space will bring the hottest themes in modern science to adults-only audiences through a programme of bold and innovative events. It will be a taboo-free centre and the place to talk science. The Dana Centre is a stylish, purpose-built venue, complete with a cafèbar, appealing to 18-45-year-olds. It is a place for them to take part in exciting, informative and innovative debates about contemporary science, technology and culture.
No two days will be the same at the Dana Centre. It's the place for experimental dialogue events, blending the best from science, art, performance and multimedia to provoke discussion and real engagement with the key issues of the day. In the Dana Centre you'll see science delivered in a very different way, everything from Edinburgh-Fringe-style stand-up comics debunking science myths to updates on radical research, handling sessions of rarely seen objects from the Science Museum's collection and challenging debates on modern science.
State-of-the-art digital facilities link the Centre and its events with venues all over the UK, those on the Internet and everyone with a mobile phone. If you can't make it to the Dana Centre in person, you can join the debate on-line.
The events focus on themes that are important to you and present them in new and attractive ways - all in a lively, informal atmosphere. If you care about how the science behind the headlines affects you and your environment, want to challenge leading experts face to face, argue the case for valuing animals over human embryos, or learn how to make ice cream in 90 seconds, then check out what's on at the Dana Centre.
