Join us at the Aster Café for an identity-related Beaker and Brush discussion, a program developed by the Science Museum as a forum for bringing together an artist and a scientist to explore topics from the perspective of both disciplines. The speakers will discuss aspects of identity such as "How is identity formed psychologically, and how does what we see form our opinions of others’ identity?" Log on to the "Beaker and Brush" Buzz blog before and after the event to post questions and continue the discussion.
