Our popular Insight sessions offer visitors to the Wellcome Library an opportunity to explore the variety of our holdings. These free sessions are thematic in style, last around an hour and offer a chance to learn about our collections.
Details of June and July’s Insights have just been released. They are:
Fascinating Faces – 16th June, 3pm-4pm
(Learn about the provocative idea that our faces can be ‘read’ – is it an art or a science?)
Women, Health and Healing – 23rd June, 3pm-4pm
(Explore the changing attitudes of women in medicine and attitudes to female healers through the centuries)
Henry Wellcome: His Life and Work – 28th July, 6pm-7pm
(Find out more about our founder as an individual, a businessman and as a collector).
For more details on how to attend the sessions, please follow the links above to the appropriate pages on the Wellcome Collection website.
