In pictures: Curious? festival of knowledge

The Curious? festival of knowledge took place at King's Cross, London this weekend (23 July), highlighting developments in various sectors including science, culture, media and history.


The Knowledge Quarter, a partnership of 73 organisations based in the King’s Cross area which create and disseminate knowledge and the King's Cross Central Limited Partnership (KCCLP), commissioned agency Produce UK to curate the event for the second year. 

Brands featuring at the event included The Guardian, University of London, Wellcome Trust, The Foundling Museum and The British Library, with sessions including experiments, talks and creative collaborations. 

Speaking ahead of the festival Jodie Eastwood, Knowledge Quarter lead, said: "Curious? will bring together visitors from the local community and across London to experience the resources, expertise and knowledge of these great institutions all situated within one mile of Kings Cross, we are delighted to be working alongside King’s Cross and Produce once again to deliver London’s festival of knowledge."

Catherine Borowski, managing director of Produce UK, added: "This is a truly innovative festival that gives us the opportunity to work with some of the most exciting organisations in the King’s Cross area. Our curatorial role gives us a chance to flex our creative muscles and collaborate with some of the most forward thinking and creative minds in the UK."

Produce UK is also working on activity this week for a collaboration between Campaign for National Parks and campaigning organisation 38 Degrees. 

Earlier this year, Guardian Media Group said it had ceased its plans to transform the Midlands Goods Shed at King's Cross into a dedicated events space.
