Wonder: Art And Science On The Brain At Barbican

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Barbican.

Revitalize your grey matter with some mind-bending stimulation at the free-to-attend Wonder Street Fair taking place at the Barbican.

The Barbican Foyer will spring into life on Sunday 7 April with a multitude of drop-in activities, performances and demonstrations designed to open your mind through art and science.

From cave painting to motion sensors, eye-trackers to body illusions, you can tickle your temporal lobe (or any lobes you fancy, really) by testing your reactions and pitting your wits against brain scientists. You will even have the opportunity to knit a neuron – now how many people can say they have done that?

Overall there will be over 20 different activities over three days to excite your cerebellum, from the interactive to the educational, so it is a fantastic opportunity to explore the human brain and how it relates to many strands of human creativity — and have free fun.

Wonder Street Fair: Art and Science on the Brain takes place on Sunday 7 (12pm-6pm), Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 April (12pm-7.30pm) at Barbican Centre and is part of the Wonder: Art and Science on the Brain, a season to light up the mind, in partnership with The Wellcome Trust. 

All events are free, drop-in and suitable for all ages.

    ‘Just dropped in’ as advised, only to find we had to ‘register before entering’. Finding the registration desk was a challenge that seemed to be defeating many others. Decided we’d had enough ‘mind-bending stimulating’ and visited a car showroom instead.
