Open Petri Dish Night No. 1

Untitled 3Genspace members gathered together to ‘lift their lids’ at the first Open Petri Dish Night!

The informal social was a members’ only event to strengthen the Genspace community. Overall, the night was a huge success, and a wonderful opportunity for the potential development of cross-platform collaborations, skill sharing and innovative ideas. The conversation was diverse as artists and scientists shared their current projects, research and experiments. Topics of discussion ranged from bacteria and fungi, to the Gowanus Canal, among many others.
