Curious will run from 01-14 August, with in-person and online events offering insight from some of the world’s leading experts across four key themes health and wellbeing, innovation and invention, our planet, and Year of Stories.
Take part in thought-provoking talks, group discussions and outdoor events and quiz some of Scotland’s leading thinkers and practitioners. Quench your curiosity on a range of topics, including poetry; insulin; health screening; death; nanotechnology; micro-satellites; knitting; mental health; mind travelling and so much more.
Curious is an opportunity to learn something new, query the way things work and speak to some of the world’s leading experts. Each event is free to attend, but places are limited, so remember to book your place in advance!
