Venue: Conway Hall (Brockway Room), Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL

Organiser: Fred McVittie

Fred McVittie has a background in performance and education, with a specific area of his research being into the ways that consciousness and language relate to performance and arts practices.

An introduction to some ideas around consciousness. What is it? How is it described by the various branches of science, and how do these differ from how it features in spiritual practice? What is the relationship between consciousness and art?

The session will include a presentation outlining some of the current thinking around this topic and will also include exercises and discussion to better enable shared understandings to develop.
