Sotanos Rocks!

Café Scientifique: Floating Laboratories Often Rock

Sotanos Tapas Bar, Broad Street
16:00, Saturday only
FREE to attend

Although Darwin’s Origin of Species contains little in the way of visual illustration, the artists and draftsmen who accompanied expeditions in the Southern Continent played a role in its formulation and in the spread of the ideas it presents.

Steve Hughes from the University of Exeter will introduce these artists and their voyages and the contributions they made to evolutionary theory before and after the publication of Origin in 1859.

In an open and convivial café atmosphere you can take part in explorations and discussions of topical scientific questions and issues. Exeter Café cientifique meets on the first Monday of each month at 2030 in the Phoenix Art Centre, Exeter.

Jurassic Coast Rocks!

A series of linked events is taking place throughout the 95-mile stretch of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. These collaborations with cultural organisations, communities and earth science will develop over the years to form a coherent picture of how we can celebrate and understand the regionís unique heritage through the arts, through the World Heritage Site designation, and through dialogue and education. The programme kicked off in late April with Universal Value: Here Now, an exciting dance event at Budleigh Salterton. All events are free unless otherwise indicated.
