Green Man will also be collaborating with other organisations for a two-day event called Conversation C, which will take place in the Camden Market this week (April 7 and 8).

The event was developed by Green Man's Einstein's Garden and its collaborators Cancer Research UK and UCL Scientists. Both days will focus on the issues in regards to cancer research and how we are best able to combat it. The event will run from 11am through until 5pm on both dates.

One of the main features of the event will be an open-air sound installation. This installation will feature interviews from numerous cancer researchers, as well as medical professionals and cancer patients. The installation is intended to spark up further debate about cancer research.

The project was debuted at Green Man in 2015 with help from the Wellcome Trust and has gone on to receive much interest and acclaim. This event will take place outside Shaka Zulu and Gilgamesh, close to the main market entrance by Camden Lock bridge. Click here for more details.
