Think Big: A Night Out With Your Brain is a series that is currently in its eighth year. The series seeks to engage with the Calgary community and create an awareness and curiosity about the brain.
Think Big is a collaboration between the Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI) and the Calgary Public Library (CPL), aiming to share knowledge about the brain and brain research, as well as involve the community in discussions about brain and mental health. The series also provides an opportunity to engage HBI and University of Calgary researchers and trainees in community outreach and knowledge translation activities.
Think Big events occur three times a year and are consistently over-subscribed, attracting more than 200 members of the Calgary community to each event.
