Minerva Scientifica is an evolving music-theatre programme and research project, pairing women scientists and composers throughout the UK.
It is an electric voice theatre initiative, developing a wide range of projects in the UK with scientists, composers, universities, primary and secondary schools, community groups, researchers and promoters. A dizzying array of knowledge, skills and fun has been shared between participants in workshops, performances, recordings, broadcasts and recordings since it began in 2013. This website provides further information about the female scientists and composers, past and present, who have featured in Minerva Scientifica Projects – sharing their music, their collaborations, and their lives and work. It also showcases music written by students who have shared in these collaborations. The site was created in partnership with Catherine Booth, Science Curator (retired) at the National Library of Scotland, Dr Patricia Fara, President of the British Society for the History of Science, and website builder Jeremy Cowan Web Design N4.
There is still a long way to go before we catch up with ourselves – so do Subscribe to the electric voice theatre Newsletter and we’ll let you know about additions from past and future projects across the UK.
