In an age of growing uncertainty, confusion and the overabundance of information, how can we make sense of the world around us? Nesta talks are here to help guide us towards some answers. They’ve cherry-picked some of the world’s leading thinkers, artists and entrepreneurs to host talks on topical subjects. And we’ve got 33% off the below two talks.

Nesta talks to… Philip Ball

How to grow a human

Inspired by his book ‘How to Grow a Human’, Phillip Ball will be exploring humanity’s deep evolutionary past, including genetic editing, cloning, neural downloading and everything in between, giving us a new perspective on how we view ourselves. After seeing his cells used to grow clumps of new neurons – essentially mini-brains – Philip Ball began to examine the concepts of identity and consciousness.

Nesta talks to… Gina Rippon

How to free our brains from sexism

Neuroscientist Gina Rippon will be drawing on her work as a professor of cognitive neuro-imaging to unpack the many stereotypes around gender. Humanity is bombarded with messages about sex and gender daily, facing beliefs that our sex determines everything. Rippon explores what impact these stereotypes have on our thoughts, decisions, and behaviour as well as our ideas about ourselves.
