Making faces: beauty lost and found

22 November, 2017, 11:00 am - 4:30 pm

Free

Come along and discover the fascinating world of the face, from medieval beauty regimes to the disfiguring effects of work, from historic dental routines to the changing attitudes towards spectacles. Take the Implicit Bias test to see just how you respond to faces that look different, and find out about the work of charity Changing Faces. Join in our discussion about computer games that use scarring and facial disfigurement as entertainment and find out who has won our ‘make a face’ competition! And get ready to take interesting selfies…

Please bring your own device!
Suitable for 14 years and over.


This event is part of the series Voices, faces and places.
