The bi-directional exchange of knowledge between scientists and the public is often marred by real and perceived inequities in education, as well as poor accessibility in communication strategies used. These barriers can be conquered by 1) genuine collaborations between the community and its scientists, 2) the incorporation of the arts as a vehicle for and expression of the science, and 3) the development of exhibitions pitched in a common and inclusive language. Employing these principles, a multigenerational group of scientists, artists and the community were engaged to share knowledge on the complexities of the Brain.
The works were a combination of scientific images with a creative influence, scientific animations, and exploration of the brain, digital projections, and illustrations, interactive educational representations of the brain and neuropsychological puzzles and challenges. Scientists worked both independently and with artists to produce the exhibits.
The exhibition was curated in a way that allowed audience observation, interaction and contribution. Importantly, it is accessible to an audience across the lifespan. Visiting the exhibition will enable the audience to learn about, marvel at, experience and contribute to brain science research in a fun and dynamic way.
