Open Spaces is a new and evolving extra-curricular programme bringing science, medicine, and healthcare into dialogue with the arts, humanities, and enterprise. It aims to stimulate interdisciplinary encounters between staff and students, students on different programmes, and between the University and the local community. In this period where so much is done remotely it aims to be a place where new connections are fostered and existing ones rejuvenated.

At its essence, Open Spaces aims to be an oasis for connection and enrichment at St George’s.

There are many different types of events offered through the programme such as: creative workshops, extra curricular arts and humanities modules you can take for additional credit, master classes in a range of areas to broaden your skills and mastery, public engagement events, the big read events, meetings of minds approaching a topic from different perspectives, the AT HOME WITH … series of seminar discussions where you can meet with leading figures from the George’s community in an informal environment and one-off high profile lectures or interactive workshops such as this year’s launch event with surgeon, GP, academic and Wellcome Engagement Fellow, Prof Roger Kneebone (Imperial College) and renowned magician Will Huston.
