Join author of The Overweight Brain and co-founder of the East Side Institute, the NYC-based home of social therapeutics, Lois Holzman, in conversation to explore the value of 'non-knowing growing'. Being in the world as a knower keeps us stuck. It constrains creativity and risk taking, keeps us small, stops us from learning new things, and stifles our capacity to create new possibilities for ourselves, families, communities and the entire world. Come along to listen, question and discuss as Lois shares her thoughts and findings from a four-decade career working in psycho-social interventions & community organising the world over.

At this time, right now, we are in a fight for humanity. We are living in such uncertainty, being confused by fictions and truths, and questioning everything. It can become way too easy to get stuck in our heads and not connect to those around us.

Normal? Festival of the Brain is co-curated by Living Words, Creative Folkestone & Folkestone Fringe. Living Words is an arts & literature charity organisation working with those with a dementia as well as those from isolated backgrounds. Creative Folkestone, is an arts charity dedicated to transforming Folkestone through collective creative activity. We do these festivals to enrich the cultural calendar of our town, bring people together, and connect Folkestone with the wider world. Each year, the Normal? programme and themes are always produced through think-ins, in which anyone is invited to share ideas of what interests them, and what they would like to see happen together.
