Resist or Coexist: An Exploration of AntiMicrobial Resistance

About Resist or Coexist: An Exploration of AntiMicrobial Resistance

For World Antibiotic Awareness Week 2019, we will explore the issue of our times, Anti Microbial Resistance (AMR) through discussion, creativity and meeting ASCUS Lab's own collection of microbes.

In ASCUS Lab, led by medical anthropologist Iona Walker of the BEYOND RESISTANCE Network, we will encourage imaginative and creative thinking around AMR and our relationship with microbes.

Get hands-on and codesign textiles with ASCUS Lab's microbes. Challenge them with everyday microbial agents such as ginger, bleach, turmeric, and soap. Explore resistance for yourself and ask how we can 'coexist' and live 'beyond resistance'.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Resist or Coexist: An Exploration of AntiMicrobial Resistance are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
