Your Brain on Art: a sensory spectacle!

Your Brain on Art: a sensory spectacle!

Another successful Branch Out event for the books – the second annual Your Brain on Art raised over $80,000!

November 17, 2019

Your Brain on Art is an immersive journey of the colliding worlds of art and science. Guests were treated to brainy presentations, a dramatic art show, live music, AND a surprise music performance by rising Canadian indie band, Reuben & The Dark. Our goal was to ‘edutain’ guests and have them learn something more about their brain and the vast world of alternative neurological research.

Neuroscientists and artists collaborated on ‘neuroscienc-y’ works of art. Together, they helped us raise $22,000 during the lively art auction.

In a captivating and moving performance, The Lily String Quartet and Reuben & the Dark demonstrated how music can affect the brain and helped us raise an additional $34,000.

We are grateful for our Branchy presenters, artists, volunteers, donors, and generous sponsors. We also cannot thank the organizing committee enough for their passion.
