Event Details

The human brain has 100 billion neurones with 100 trillion connections, probably the most complex organ in the Universe. There are huge research projects in Europe and America that are either trying to make a map of all these connection or recreate our brain on computers. These discoveries will change our world.

The main festival area will span from City Gate along Republic Street to St George’s Square including venues in between.
