On Wednesday 9th May scientists and non-scientists gathered at King’s College London to celebrate the launch of London Light and also the International Day of Light.
The International Day of Light is a global initiative that provides an annual focal point for the continued appreciation of light and the role it plays in science, culture and art, education, and sustainable development, and in fields as diverse as medicine, communications, and energy. The broad theme of light will allow many different sectors of society worldwide to participate in activities that demonstrates how science, technology, art and culture can help achieve the goals of UNESCO – education, equality, and peace.
We were fortunate to have three artists show their work at our launch event. Dr Shelley James, Dara Rigel and Nedyalka Panova.
