North West Cambridge Artist-in-Residence
Meet an artist: Melanie Manchot
Melanie Manchot would like to meet Cambridge University postdoctoral researchers and invite them to participate in her forthcoming series of ‘cross-talk’ events, which will take place over the next academic year. Melanie seeks to engage with a wide cross section of researchers to explore the future of communities with a focus on postdocs in the context of the NW Cambridge Development. Researchers of all disciplines are warmly invited to join Melanie for an introduction to the project at the Postdoc Centre, 16 Mill Lane.
Melanie’s new project aims to involve postdoc researchers in a series of curated conversations that will form the basis for a new artwork. Postdoc researchers can participate in a variety of capacities. Please come and talk to Melanie about your research and explore the possibilities to engage in her art project.
When: Wednesday 19 October 5.30 to 6.30pm
Where: Postdoc Centre, 16 Mill Lane, Cambridge CB2 1SB
