Are you keen to explore new ways of working and share different perspectives? Are you thinking about trying something new, looking to pursue innovative ideas, and motivated to stretch your potential as part of a dynamic group? If so, we challenge you to join Ideas Hub at Wellcome Collection.

Ideas Hub is a week-long programme of activities and workshops exploring the links between science, medicine, life and art. Here, you’ll join people from all sorts of backgrounds for creative exercises, project work, and talks with a diverse range of experts. As a team, you’ll explore not just the theme but also your own potential. Ideas Hub will give you a unique opportunity to reimagine what your future could hold.

Ideas Hub is free to attend, and we will cover reasonable travel costs. It will take place at Wellcome Collection in London in September 2018. We hope you can join us.
