 Exhibition opening in Bodmin

Sept 6th – November 27th



Discover the peculiarities of science with interactive art installations crafted from waste materials.


Our society needs critical thinkers if we are going to solve our climate crisis. Otherwise, we will be grasping at straws rather than pulling up nets. 

To fix any problem, we first need to understand it. The science behind environmental issues is often made to seem too complex  or  overly simplified with  green washing and corporate misrepresentation. 

There is no dedicated science museum in Cornwall and a lack of child-friendly art venues. Informal learning spaces are a key way of connecting us with subjects that may seem boring or difficut on paper. We need different ways of making art, science and environmental issues relevent to our everyday lives.

Discovering42 is about using art as a catalyst for engaging adults and children with science and environmental issues. We will create thought provoking events that encourage imagination, interaction and ingenuity. Join us on the journey to create a grassroots arts and science hub in Cornwall.








During these turbulent times, it is easy to become overwhelmed and isolated. There is a lack of community as we become increasingly digitalised. Our culture is increasingly passive, we tend to buy rather than make and we replace rather than fix. Discovering42 is about empowering us all to come together and share ideas. We want people to feel like they can be an active part of visualising and creating solutions.

At Discovering42, we believe that we don’t need to have all the answers, we just need to want to make a difference and start somewhere. We need to make mistakes, experiment, learn and adapt as we go.

If you want to be part of the action, get in touch. There is so much to do and we would love you to be part of the team. You can be involved as little or as much as you like. Let’s have a chat to find out what you are passionate about, what you enjoy doing or would like to try out and develop!  We really look forward to hearing from you.
