Last 21st March at Homerton College (Cambridge, UK), we had an event to raise funds for our project. Among the artists exhibiting their creations were Claudia Stocker, a scientific illustrator coming all the way from Bristol, and Agnes Asselin, an active Drosophila scientist at the University of Cambridge and artist with a passion for African textiles. Their creations were auctioned at the end of the event. We managed to raise £5,400! It was a nice evening, with lots of people attending the event.
