10:00 Augmented Reality Interactive Science Day

Regency Town House, Servants Kitchen, No.10 Basement

The Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science will be hosting a science day to compliment the exhibition, which will allow members of the public to experience the cutting edge of consciousness science and virtual reality. This interactive event will explore how experiences of the world are shaped by the body and how bodily-experience itself is actively constructed, moment-to-moment, by the brain.

Pop along throughout the day 10:00 - 17:00


Starting at Phoenix Brighton, 10-14 Waterloo Place Brighton, BN1

The second BFP18 Trainee Curator tour with Kate Kelsall, takes in a selection of exhibitions across the Fringe, following the thread of ‘home’: where it is, what it means and how different artists represent this most intimate of ideas. As Britain rethinks its place in the world, this tour will be a chance to ponder personal ‘belonging’, the human need to have somewhere to call home and how photography illuminates ties between the private and public.
