Creative Brain Week 2024 – 4-9th March 2024 – online and in person events which explore and celebrate how brain science and creativity collide to seed new ideas in social development, technology, entrepreneurship, wellbeing and physical, mental and brain health across the life cycle. This annual pioneering event illustrates innovation at the intersection of arts and brain science, including creative approaches to health.

This year’s theme is Attention, Connection and Love

We explore the above themes through arts, neuroscience, and their application:

  • Attention, how does it work, what do people pay attention to, what happens as attention changes?
  • Connection, how are people connected and what to? What connections do people ignore and can connections be nurtured?
  • Love (and when it isn’t enough)—how do neuroscientists and artists understand love, and is love enough to build global systems of care?

In person events take place once again in the Science Gallery (Naughton Institute), Trinity College Dublin.  Events are free, but due to space limitations, both online and in person events are ticketed.
