How do we see and perceive the world around us? Cambridge thinkers and leading alumni will reflect on how understanding the way we view the world, and sharing what we see, can bring a powerful new perspective to human challenges.

On Thursday, 16 November you’ll be able to meet with fellow alumni in the stunning surroundings of the National Gallery and hear a panel of leading academics and alumni, hosted by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen Toope, discuss how we see and perceive the world through art.
