Sunday 3 December, 10am – 3pm
Brain Project is a social enterprise which aims to facilitate engaging and informed conversations about the mind and brain through art and science.
We are hosting an art-science workshop for 16-25 year olds and their families, to explore conversations around living with anxiety.
