An after-hours special event is coming to the Science and Industry Museum, inspired by the groundbreaking world-first exhibition Cancer Revolution: Science, innovation and hope.

A Shared Hope, taking place on Wed 9 Mar, blends art and science to highlight the different ways cancer can affect our lives through performances, interactive activities, talks and more. It will also celebrate the people working tirelessly to transform cancer care, from researchers and doctors to patients and their families and friends.

One of the evening’s highlights includes a first live performance of Innit, Love?, a poem created by acclaimed Mancunian Tony Walsh (Longfella) on behalf of Greater Manchester Cancer to mark World Cancer Day last year.

There’ll also be cookery demonstrations from Ryan Riley, the best-selling author, cook and founder of Life Kitchen; a not-for-profit cookery school for people whose senses have been impacted by cancer treatment and interactive activities hosted by Cancer Research UK. 

Inspiring conversations with actress and singer Victoria Ekanoye, Chief Academic Officer at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust Professor Robert Bristow and Founder and CEO of CanSurviveUK Marcella Turner will be chaired by award-winning investigative journalist, presenter and director Qasa Alom.

Along with the special programme, guests will have the opportunity to explore Cancer Revolution: Science, innovation and hope—the exhibition explores the past, present and future of how cancer is prevented, detected and treated, delving into the revolution in science that is transforming cancer care.
