Life-Size Game of Operation

  • Saint Thomas Street London, England, SE1 United Kingdom (map)


Come along to the Emerge Festival at the Old Operating Theatre and have a go playing with our take on the classic “Operation” game. Along the way you’ll learn about how important blood donation is to successful operations and be inspired to donate some of your own!

For this year's Emerge Festival, our design team would like to use this space to celebrate other body types which were traditionally overlooked in medical teaching models. Our giant, life-size version of the classic "Operation" board game uses the bodies of women of colour as the patients. We hope that this will question what is the "norm" in medical teaching in a fun and challenging way.
