Join Nicola Clayton and Clive Wilkins at the Hay Festival.

Memories are not only about the past; they also affect the future. Nicola and Clive, a scientist and a fine artist respectively, explore the complex relationships between memory and human experience. Join them for a fascinating discussion incorporating science, literature, magic and dance.

Nicola Clayton is a Professor of Comparative Cognition at Cambridge University and a Fellow of the Royal Society. Clive Wilkins is a fine art painter and has exhibited widely, including at the National Portrait Gallery, London. Together they collaborate through The Captured Thought.
