Normal? Festival of the Brain

Co-curators of yearly arts & science / brain & wellbeing festival, Folkestone

We are proud to work along side Folkestone Quarterhouse and Folkestone Fringe to bring this festival to Kent. So far there have been 3 festivals, each held at the Quarterhouse in May 2015, 2016 and 2017.


Normal? Festival of the Brain brings science and art together over four days to explore the brain. Exhibitions, workshops, gigs, discussions and performances spark debate and give a helping hand to all of us to share our stories and come together in the sharing of other peoples.


Each year we build on the arts/science and dementia representation – always making sure the voices of people with lived experience are present, front and centre.


Co-curated with the local community, we have Think In meetings to shape and build community in and around the festival.  To get involved and find out more email us.


The festival has been supported by Arts Council England; Wellcome Trust; RDHCT; KCC; Shepway District Council; Folkestone Town Council; and the Big Lottery.
