An art exhibition festival event celebrating the beauty of eyes and vision will be open to the public from 1.00pm in the Main Tower at Queen’s University Belfast. There will also be a series of short talks starting at 3pm.
The exhibition will celebrate the beauty of the eye, raise awareness of how important vision and vision research is for everyone. The talks will challenge everyone to think of our current and future selves – especially in relation to vision, healthy ageing, incorporating material culture and visual arts.
The event will be facilitated by Professor Tunde Peto, Professor of Clinical Ophthalmology at Queen’s University Belfast, and colleagues.
Everyone is welcome
Of particular interest to people with a visual impairment and their families and also people interested in eyes, eye research and science and art
