    Can we live longer, better?

    HeadSpace2018 is a two-day celebration of scientific and creative investigation into brain health and dementia.

    We invite you to join us in conversations about caring communities, research and cultural solutions, that will inform, engage, entertain and inspire.

    The brain is especially sensitive to external influence and aging. Poverty, housing and education have huge effects on health. As does access to healthcare, isolation, social connectedness and personal security. Its estimated these social determinants account for 50% of disease and mortality. We grow old in different ways. By 2041, 22% of the population with be 65 or older. Addressing this change is key to improving health but healthcare alone can’t solve the issues.  It needs creative thinking and collaborative effort. Champions across society and government. Many voices and communities contributing to new scientific discoveries, innovations and cultural change in this area is important. Join us and bring your lived and learnt experience.
