One Cell At A Time, funded by Wellcome Trust, with the Human Cell Atlas (HCA) initiative, a pioneering, multidisciplinary global research project involving over 2,200 researchers from 80+ countries. HCA aims to map the function of every cell type in the human body, paving the way for new understanding and treatment of disease. The ambitious two-year programme of cross-sector public engagement activities aimed to improve the value and trust people place in scientific research, with a consequent impact on public willingness to donate tissue for research and share their data for research.

Project managed four teams (Cambridge, London, Oxford and Newcastle) to deliver 13 x art-science participatory artworks, creative learning projects and an international online discussions series entitled ArtSci Salons, culminating in an online exhibition featuring interactive and time-based, interactive media, including augmented reality (AR), film, screendance, poetry, sound art, visualised databases, text and animation, Situated at the nexus of art and science, One Cell At A Time proved to be a powerful opportunity to catalyse new thinking, knowledge and ways of working between artists, scientists and diverse communities located across four areas of England: Newcastle, London, Cambridge and Oxford.
