ALIA is the CCCB’s education programme for young people that brings together scientific research and artistic creation. In this third edition, 200 fourth-year ESO and first-year Baccalaureate students and their teachers in the Barcelona metropolitan region tackle a series of challenges to investigate the workings of the brain and understand what human consciousness is. The result of their investigation will take the form of a very special graphic novel. Accompanied by scientists from the Center for Brain and Cognition (UPF) and Escola JOSO.
