SCIENCE GETS SOCIAL: Pillow Talk

Festival Lab, South Bank

Summary

Our sleeping hours may be filled with sweet dreams, insomnia and nightmares. Between sleep and wake many of us sleep talk, some sleep walk, while others suffer through visceral night terrors. Venture into the dark hours as we explore sleep patterns, REM and the wondrous world of dreams.

The ticket price includes a beverage on arrival.

This is an 18+ event. This venue is licensed. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. The Queensland Museum Network supports the responsible consumption of alcohol at all events.
