Welcome to Creative Brain Week 2024.
Themes of Attention, Connect and Love (or when it is not enough) enable artists and scientists, people with lived experience and practitioners to bring the best knowledge and expertise from across disciplines. They address the challenges of non-communicable diseases like Alzheimer’s, and complex issues like brain health, poverty and environmental impact.
