Distinguished scientists, philosophers, artists, writers, and entertainers are gathering in Leeds from 7 – 9 June to debate and discuss some of our biggest questions about life, the universe, and everything. Through the lens of Humanism we will explore our imagination, push the boundaries of our understanding of creation, and investigate how we engage with the world around us.
With some of the world’s leading thinkers and creators our annual conference weekend is thought-provoking and inspiring – an unforgettable experience.
Confirmed guests include theoretical physicist and President of the British Humanist Association Jim Al-Khalili, Psychologist and Writer Sue Blackmore, Public Astronomer at Greenwich Observatory Marek Kukula, award-winning writer Christopher Priest, Gardiner Chair of Chemistry Lee Cronin, author of Girl with a One Track Mind Zoe Margolis, comic artist and writer Melinda Gebbie, geneticist, broadcaster and editor for the science journal Nature Adam Rutherford, geek songstress Helen Arney, comedian Robin Ince, and our MC for the opening evening, drag performer Timberlina.
