Preview of the Cambridge Betterment Society Launch Evening

Cambridge based artist Harold Offeh has developed an ongoing project focussed on the Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre (Project Capella) called the Cambridge Betterment Society which brings together scientists, clinicians, artists, patient groups and others introducing insight, observation, humour and alternative perspectives to the work of the scientists and clinicians.

The first phase of the Society resulted in the production of four films. Fibroblast by Harold Offeh features live re-enactments of microscopic images of the fibroblast cells. Agora Blend by Jack Scott and Louis-Jack Horton Stephens examines the positive effects of ‘cross-pollination’ that occur when scientists and clinicians gather, together, Reprogramming the Human Heart by Frederica Agbah explores the discovery of the science behind the creation of Pluripotent stem cells through dance, and Connect, Accelerate, Engage, by Harold Offeh, focuses on the mission of the Milner Therapeutics Institute.
