One Tenth Human create innovative science-inspired arts events


We aim to challenge assumptions, dare to think differently and be as silly as we need to be to wrestle with a very serious world.


One Tenth Human was created by artistic director Sarah Punshon, inspired by the year she spent working at the Natural History Museum, collaborating with scientists and museum professionals to create interactive events for family visitors.


Since our formation just over three years ago, we’ve raised more than £200,000 from private philanthropy, trusts, foundations, box office and the Arts Council to support our work. We’ve engaged more than 7,000 people in unusual activities and performances via our schools’ workshops and live events. An estimated 75,000 have heard about our work online, via social media, at a conference or in the press. We’ve engaged with more than 45 scientists and mathematicians as advisors and activity leads – and they’re as excited by our work as the artists, teachers and audiences:


“That was so wonderful! Truly an inspiring show for kids, including me”

Dr Madeline Lancaster, Cambridge University neuroscientist


“I thought the show was Pure Excellence and Absolute Genius! I don't know how many mathematicians and scientists you consulted with, but even if I was one of a thousand, I am so proud to have made a contribution.”

Dr Nira Chamberlain, Optimisation Lead, Npower
