A one day symposium at the Wellcome Trust exploring themes of placebo


Wellcome Collection
183 Euston Rd, London NW1 2BE

Join Clod Ensemble for a day of provocation and engaging discussion at Wellcome Collection with leading scientists, cultural thinkers, artists and medics, exploring how our attitudes, beliefs, relationships, rituals and environments can affect our health for better or for worse.

What is the placebo effect and what can it tell us about the way we practice healthcare today? How can expectations, suggestibility, belief, charisma of the healer, ritual and environment impact on our health? Can we be agents of our own pleasure and pain? How are we affected by those providing us with care, the manner in which we are cared for, or the setting in which care is given?
