From the 4th - 9th July 2023 the Curating Crises team is coming to the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition with our interactive exhibit SENSING VOLCANOES.

The Exhibit will highlight some of the stories we have uncovered from the archives, as well as challenge visitors to experience how scientists and communities use their senses to detect changes at volcanoes.
