Event details

Do you go quackers for ducks? Then why not join us for a creative workshop bringing together research, art and ducks in the biosciences?

Get crafty, hear short talks and follow the Long Boiology art trail, created in memory of the University of York’s most famous duck, Long Boi. Discover the power of art in starting conversations about science and find out about the exciting work going on in biosciences at York.

You are welcome to drop in anytime from noon onwards and to stay for as long as you wish.
