Belowground Visions of Life:Soil makes Art

Time/Date - 11:00 - 16:30, Sat 1 Apr 2017

Do you know what soil is? Do you know who lives in it? Do you know why it is important to us?

Ed Reynolds, artist and Tancredi Caruso, scientist (Queen's University, Belfast), have worked together to produce a series of artworks which answer all these questions.

Come along to see these wonderful artworks in the Welcome Zone where there will also be experts to tell you lots more about the art and soil. You will also meet Ed and Tancredi and have the chance to ask lots of questions about the project.

We will also have microscopes and lots of soil creatures for you to look at. Scientists will be there to tell you all about them.
