On 3 September 1928, Alexander Fleming returned to his laboratory after a holiday, and said, "That's funny". 
Before leaving, he had inoculated staphylococci on culture plates and left them on his bench. On return, one was contaminated with a fungus, and the colonies of staphylococci surrounding it had been destroyed by the antibiotic effect of penicillin.

Ninety-three years later, misuse and overuse of antibiotics has led to drug-resistant pathogens.  Antimicrobial resistance is a global threat to modern medicine. Fleming himself predicted this would occur.

On the 93rd birthday of penicillin, we explore the challenge of antimicrobial resistance with performances, panels, opera, comedy, and films by scientists and artists.

What can we learn from microbes about innovation and cooperation? What can we learn from each other through telling stories? How can collaboration help us work towards a shared goal of One Health?

EVERYONE IS INVITED
