In 2016, One Tenth Human curated a night of sensational art and science for the Wellcome Trust’s annual screenwriting party.
More than 400 VIP guests from the film industry gathered to hear that Sally Wainwright was the winner
of the 2016 Wellcome Screenwriting Fellowship, an award given in partnership with the BFI and Film Four.
Our sensational event invited guests to revel in their senses, allowing new physical sensations to explode on their tongues,
raise goosebumps on their flesh, and fire their body’s chemicals to sway their mood.
The night’s events featured collaborations with an exciting range of artists and scientists.
If you are interested in finding out more about the project, or working with One Tenth Human on a collaboration or commission, do get in touch.
