Join us for a series of free events, films, performances, talks and workshops for young people, inspired by the ‘Genetic Automata’ exhibition by artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy, exploring race and identity in an age of avatars, cinema, videogames and DNA ancestry.

Be part of Exploring Genetic Automata, an exclusive, free, after-hours event for young people created by Wellcome Collection’s Youth Panel. You’ll explore the themes of the exhibition with discussions, music, performances and workshops.

You’re also invited to a special series of sci-fi screenings with free pizza, pick’n’mix and refreshments followed by post-screening discussions exploring how science, race and technology have shaped society and ourselves.
