Shakespeare or Pythagoras? Arts or Science? Maths or Creativity? Quite often, there is an either/or attitude towards subjects, a false dichotomy that forces us to make a choice between concepts that are deeply interconnected. Join poet and maths graduate Harry Baker and popular mathematician Marcus du Sautoy as they explore how maths is, in many regards, a creative art, and what the future of creativity could look like. Like poetry, art and music, maths has patterns, rhythm, and beauty.

Harry  will open with a ‘headline’ poetry act before he and Marcus delve deep into conversation.

Harry Baker is a British spoken word artist, author, poet and World Slam Poetry Champ. His latest book Unashamed follows his journey from graduating with a maths degree being unsure if poetry was a viable career to eventually becoming an internationally recognized poet.

Marcus du Sautoy is a gifted mathematical communicator and author of popular mathematics and science books, who a professor of mathematics at the University of Oxford. He is the author of The Creativity Code, The Music of the Primes, and Thinking Better.
