Join us to imagine the impossible and discover Looking-Glass worlds, from the A.L.I.C.E project to VR experiences. Explore the psychological ideas of 'Through the Looking-Glass' from perception and identity to the neuroscience of creativity, and celebrate its themes of empowerment from chess to transformation.

Speakers include Ariane Koek, a world leader and visionary in the field of science and art, as well as Dr Anna Abraham, a professor in psychology specialising in the study of creativity, imagination and social cognition. We’ll also be joined by Adam Haar Horowitz, a self-proclaimed engineer of dreams whose work aims to augment human awareness and award-winning costume designer Gabriele Binder best known for her work as costume designer for The Queens’s Gambit.
