Minds & Microscopes: creativity and neuroscience workshop and meetup

Join us for our first workshop-style evening delving further into creativity in neuroscience and neuroscience in art

We kick off at 6 pm with Craig Garner speaking about creativity in neuroscience.
Afterwards, we will have a speedy date session to pick the brains of our sci-artist friends and connect this awesome community further. Last but not least, you get to build your own microscope during our DIY microscope workshop hosted at Planet Flow.

As a professor at Charité in Berlin, a research group leader at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases, and the co-founder and coordinator (with U. Dirnagl) of SPARK-Berlin, Craig Garner is a fine example of a neurosci- artist. This evening, he will spark some inspiration on the importance of being creative as a neuroscientist as he talks about how creativity influences his work as a scientist, and how being a scientist influences his art.

DIY microscope workshop
Everyone is a scientist, everyone is an artist. Today we remember we can be both at the same time, as we are lead through an amazing workshop building DIY digital microscope for our own discovery joys. All under 10€ -for materials and everything whaaat!
“The underlying beauty of this “hack” is the hidden citizen science philosophy – science shouldn’t be exclusive and hidden in laboratories and away from people. It is information about life, about us, and so it belongs to us.”
-Julia, workshop host
