    Seven Arts, Harrogate Road, Chapel Allerton, Leeds LS7 3PD
    Prof Stephen Westland (University of Leeds)

    What is colour? How does it relate to our perception? Is a colour such as magenta real, if it is not in the spectrum?
    You may remember "the dress", the viral phenomenon from 2015. Was it black-and-blue, or was it white-and-gold?
    Stephen Westland is Professor of Colour Science and Technology in the School of Design at the University of Leeds. His research includes psychophysics - measuring human responses to physical stimuli. He will discuss what colour really is, and why we perceive it as we do.

    The meeting will be in-person at Seven Arts, 31A Harrogate Road, Leeds LS7 3PD. It will not be broadcast over Zoom.

    The price of everything is going up. Please can everyone who can afford it remember to bring 2 or 3 pound coins along. These small donations are needed to fund the cost of the venue.
