Conference Culture and Neuroscience
The conference was created by Karolina Wiktor, a visual artist, who in 2009 suffered from two strokes. Her sickness made her aware of the big gaps in education and public awareness. The conference is intended to be a dialogue between neuroscience and broadly defined culture. Even though
the dialogue is ongoing, it is internal and closed and mostly incomprehensible to the recipient because of the excessed terminology. And yet, so many of us would like to understand, for instance: the functioning of the brain. The main and most difficult recipients of the conference are sick or disabled neurologically guests and their attendants, but also healthy people wishing knowledge. We would like this conference to initiate a broad social dialogue, including people of culture, science, healthy people as well as disabled, without any exceptions.
