THINK GIGS | Scientific vs Artistic Thinking

Exploding the Myth of Scientific vs Artistic Thinking

Are you a convergent or a divert thinker? Right brain or left brain dominated? An artist or a scientist? This gig explores the art of science & the science of art, taking us on a tour of the brain from Brian Cox to Leonardo da Vinci & all places in between. Abandon all stereotypes, all ye who enter. 

David Pearson is a Reader in Cognitive Psychology at Anglia Ruskin University & Fellow of the British Psychological 
Society. A widely published writer, his research is focused on understanding the cognitive processes involved during memory, mental imagery & visuo-spatial thinking.

With Huddersfield's favourite casuistical heresiarchs, Crooks and Claridge, responding to the talk with pitch, rhythm & rhetoric, & an opportunity for a group discussion.

Join us in Café Ollo at The Media Centre in Huddersfield from 7pm.

This event is free to attend, although there will be a ‘pay as you feel’ system in place and opportunities for donations to HOOT Creative Arts (Registered charity no. 1146358)
