At The Hub at Wellcome Collection, we believe that complex problems are best solved through collaboration. That’s why we run Ideas Hub, a co-created programme of talks, creative workshops and reflective exercises that bring together different perspectives and voices to create new knowledge about health.

The programme offers participants time out from their normal routines to think differently and collaborate with a network of creative leaders and practitioners from different sectors.

We first ran Ideas Hub as a week-long, in-person programme in 2018, and again in 2020/21, when we moved online due to the pandemic. Our 2020 programme brought together 20 people from across academia, advocacy, arts and healthcare to consider the themes of mental health, power and ownership.

What people have said about Ideas Hub

“A rich and powerful experience of bringing curious minds together.”

“A week that will truly challenge you and open up new lines of enquiry.”

“This is the way people should be working to solve the biggest problems we face.”
