Normal? Festival of the Brain, 21st-24th May


The Festival of the Brain brings science and art together over four days to explore the brain. What happens when connections, chemicals and catastrophes send things off course, and is there such a thing as normal?

Meet the archivists inside a brain, trying to keep dementia at bay whilst they sort through a lifetime of memories; meet the puppet learning to adapt to motor neuron disease; meet the boy who is making a list of every brilliant thing in the world for his mother to combat her depression.  Participate in debates, daily mindfulness sessions, workshops and much more.

Normal? is co-curated with Susanna Howard of Living Words and Diane Dever of Folkestone Fringe. Everyone is invited to join us to wonder at this complex pound of flesh.
