Event description

Description

Are you interested in consciousness and hacking your mental health? Or perhaps the latest transformative and immersive technologies being designed to raise mental health, emotional well-being and human thriving?

Join Consciousness Hacking, HackMentalHealth, Transformative Technology and Immerse UK for a very special, informal pre-holidays "good people and good conversations over drinks" meet-up. These four communities are coming together for the very first time!

There is no ticket charge - it’s free to attend, you will only need to pay for your own drinks, as at any bar. Please RSVP as we have limited space, and that way we can also contact you if we need to communicate any changes.

You will meet a cross-section of healthcare professionals, technologists, creative thinkers, entrepreneurs, biohackers and beyond - all united by our interest in better health and well-being enabled through systems thinking and technology. Everyone interested in these topics is welcome to attend.

We look forward to meeting you or seeing you again on the night!

With gratitude,

Sarah, Shivani, Tony and Niraj

Immerse UK, Hack Mental Health, Consciousness Hacking and Transformative Technology Lab.
