Sci–Fi LAB @ The Joan
Be entertained and indulge your love for the out of the ordinary this October. Sci-Fi LAB - four compelling Friday nights of sci-fi cult classic film screenings followed by cutting edge research, guest talks, performances and installations to keep the tradition of sci-fi alive.
Be part of the speculative fiction as you join our guest scientists and artists to explore the themes and “what if” of sci-fi. Grasp the relevant futuristic, scientific or technological impacts as well as the societal, historic, economic implications for the human race as Sci-Fi LAB explores all the dreams, fears and anxieties that come with sci-fi:
- the threat of invasion; extra- terrestrial intelligence in our universe,
- Sci -fi meets reality; unravelling DNA, genetic engineering
- the fragility of the planet; Earth unravels
- hostility and control; engineering challenges in space
Whether you’re a hard core sci-fi geek; a newbie beginning to explore this galaxy of wonder, or have no idea at all, bring a gang of friends each Friday in October from 7- 9pm to Sci-Fi - LAB and do as Dr Who said “hold tight and pretend it’s a plan!”
