Music, art and science collide in an explosive celebration of women’s creativity.

Hexagon experiment

A six-part series of Friday night experiments* featuring live music, conversations and original commissions from pioneering women at the forefront of music, art and science.

Inspired by the creativity that led to the discovery of the Nobel-Prize winning ‘wonder material’ graphene, The Hexagon Experiment brings together the North’s most exciting musicians and scientists for six free events – from music made by robots to a spectacular tribute to an unsung heroine.

Presented by Manchester based creative music charity Brighter Sound and the National Graphene Institute at The University of Manchester.

The Hexagon Experiment is part of Both Sides Now – a three-year initiative run by Brighter Sound to support, inspire and showcase women in music across the North of England.
