Multiverse Lab is an interactive installation designed to gather the opinions of the public. It aims to find out what matters most to them when it comes to health and social care.
The NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) along with partners*, commissioned Unfolding Theatre to create Multiverse Lab.
The Lab asks: ‘What health or social care breakthrough do you hope to see in your lifetime?’
The goal is to gather as many voices as possible and to allow the public to have their say in the research that will shape the future of healthcare.
Whilst Multiverse Lab is a playful and fun installation, it also aims to highlight the importance health and social care research has on our everyday lives.
The Multiverse Lab has been an online and a live tour experience. Over the past year, it has interacted with hundreds of people from across the North East. See the Multiverse Lab journey so far
