The Art (and Science) of Epilepsy - join us for a free symposium

30 Apr 2018

The St Edmund Hall Centre for the Creative Brain invite you to join us on Friday 18 May, from 7.30- 9.30pm in the Old Dining Hall, for a symposium on the art (and science) of epilepsy. The symposium will explore the link between epilepsy and art in many forms. It will feature talks from Dr Sallie Baxendale, on how epilepsy has inspired filmmakers over the last 100 years; Dr Rhys Thomas, discussing artists with epilepsy; and Dr Rhys Bevan-Jones, on his work in art and mental health.

The Centre for the Creative Brain organises termly events to explore how neuroscience can further our understanding of the aspects of our lives that make us most human, and how insights from art, music, and literature can enrich our understanding of the brain.

This symposium is free and open to all, but space is limited so please reserve your place at the link below. We welcome undergraduates, postgraduates, parents, academics, scientists, artists and anyone with an interest in the link between epilepsy and art. Drinks will be served.
