Vaccines: Injecting Hope, explores the history and science of vaccines globally and rapid innovation through international collaboration for the recent SARS-COV 2 pandemic vaccine. The exhibition will inspire audiences to understand the shared cultural connections through science, arts and digital innovation in the UK and India.

Get inspired by ‘The Lens’, a commissioned sculpture of frontline workers rising to embrace and celebrate the arrival of a vaccine. This is accompanied by a series of animations that invites viewers to reflect on India’s history of vaccination programmes by drawing a link with the royal family of Mysore receiving their variolation against smallpox in the late 18th century.
