Lancaster Room, Somerset House, London — On Monday, 13th March 2023, the Kindness Studio is hosting an event to commemorate Ada Lovelace. Learn how art and STEM interlace in the event commemorating Ada Lovelace.


Ada Lovelace, a 19th century mathematics, and computer science pioneer is celebrated globally as a role model for women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). In March 2022, a statue of Ada Lovelace was unveiled by St Edward in Millbank Quarter at the City of Westminster.

The Kindness Studio has paired up with St Edward to celebrate Ada Lovelace day, which is being supported by the University of Warwick and The Alan Turing Institute. The event will discuss how the sculpture will elevate women progressing in STEM.

The event will feature Mary & Etienne Millner (artists of the Ada Lovelace statue), Elisabeth Rounis (neurologist) and Aidan Meller (creator of Ai-Da). The Q&A will inform the audience of the message and rationale of the Lovelace statue located in the Millbank Quarter development in Westminster.

The event will supply an open network to speak on the struggles of women in the sciences. The goal of the upcoming event is to promote creativity in art and science and encourage an open discussion on widening the door to gender inclusivity in STEM. The event comes at a time when, according to the UK education hub, women account for only 11.4% of STEM starts (2019/20).

The event is designed to...
• Celebrate Ada Lovelace and discuss how the sculpture in Westminster will elevate women’s progression in
• Provide a networking platform for fellows and artists to exchange ideas
• Promote creativity through art and breakthrough in science
• Promote gender inclusivity within the STEM community.

The Kindness Studio encourages everyone to come out and participate in the event, hosted from 2pm to 6pm on Monday, 13th March 2023. Ada Lovelace day will be held at Lancaster Room, Somerset House, Strand, London, WC2R 1LA.
