This week folks all over the world will be taking part in activities organized by people who share our love for the brain (thanks partners!). Brain Awareness Week is a chance for all of us to celebrate and learn more about the organ that is responsible for everything we do.
Events are taking place in venues from concert halls to classrooms, public plazas to cozy bars. Find something near you: Search the Brain Awareness Week calendar, choose your country or city to narrow the choices and go! Currently there are more than 680 events on the calendar; more are often added during this week, some that take place later in the month. (See also specific calendars for UK events and the Be Brainy New York City events)
Don’t want to go out? Catch a webinar on Monday at 1 pm EDT, “Memory and the Brain,” hosted by Brainfacts.org and promising hands-on activities.
If you go out (or stay in) and like to take photos or make art, post them to your favorite platform and use the tag #brainweek so we can all see it and like your work! If you want to help us spread the word, you can find the week’s logos and images on our social-media toolkit page.
