You thought EDGE is only based in Berlin? Not at all, we are bigger than just Berlin! EDGE West is conceptualizing and realizing EDGE activities in the area of North-Rhine Westphalia, all with the same goals and visions that EDGE always had.
North-Rhine Westphalia (NRW) is a rich place for bridging the gap between arts and neuroscience, as both branches are well-represented and internationally recognized across the whole area. A major benefit of NRW is its high interconnectivity, with several bigger cities being so close together that they can be reached within 10 mins of a train ride from one another. NRW is an area of collaboration in itself.
EDGE West brings the EDGE community to NRW and unifies art and neuroscience in a new area. For our kick-off event, we have worked with the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn to communicate neuroscience through art in a public workshop, and we will continue to host events and workshops to build our community. We collaborate with art and science institutions across all of NRW to make people fall in love with art and neuroscience and everything in-between. We strive on collaboration and we are always happy to welcome new members to our little sci-art family, so if you are based in NRW (or not, really, you’re all welcome here!) become a part of EDGE West and our NRW team!
