Chemistry: a beacon for the Creative and the Curious, School of Chemistry, Friday, 23. August 2019

This event merges history, arts, science and philosophy. It recreates the convergence of thinking across disciplines that inspired Mendeleev to conceive of the Periodic Table in 1859 and to give birth to what became known as elemental theory.
The event has three distinct but overlapping elements for the Creative, the Curious and the Chemist..
-  A reception and artists's discussion to mark the unveiling of three unique pieces of artwork on the historic staircase (c. 1845) of the Main Chemistry Building in Trinity College Dublin.
- A presentation lecture which takes us on 'An exploration of Medieval Manuscripts using Spectroscopic Techniques' by Prof. Andrew Beeby (University of Durham).
- RSC Republic of Ireland Local Section AGM and Social.
The event arises through funding awarded by the RSC's IYPT and TCD's Visual and Performing Arts fund and a unique collaboration between the National College of Arts and Design and the School of Chemistry (on the closing of its in-house glass-blowing workshop in 2019).
