Normal? Festival of the Brain
10 - 13 May 2018

Normal? Festival of the Brain brings science and art together over four days to wonder at the brain. This year we explored neuroplasticity and asked what happens when we change our habits and behaviours - either through circumstance or conscious decision.

Co-curated by Folkestone Quarterhouse & Living Words.

The SALT Festival
6 - 9 September 2018

Festival of the Sea & Environment.

SALT explores the way coastal environments shape who we are and how we think, and asks what the future might hold for the people and places that exist on the edge.
