Brain Awareness Week (BAW) 2016 may be over, but the campaign’s impact is more visible and its scope more tangible than ever. Photos have been pouring in from BAW partners around the world, documenting their activities in celebration of the campaign. The BAW photo gallery is up and is a great way to connect on a personal level with the efforts of partners.

The photos portray shared moments, transporting you to each event and creating a more emotive experience than you might have from just reading about them. From a Brain Bee in Romania to art exhibitions in Jerusalem to an open field interactive exhibit in Brazil, the BAW photo gallery has it all for your viewing pleasure.
