At a time of societal turbulence and inequality, the Centre for Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience (CDCN) at UCL has addressed the issue of racism and its effects on the developing brain by delivering an arts competition and a prize giving ceremony to offer unity, hope and healing through artistic expressions.  The programme featured the participation of four international judges who selected the winners of the competition, and included presentations by Astronaut and artist Nicole Stott, Moons Symphony Composer, Amanda Lee Falkenberg, and award winning animated film executive producer, Lady Levy.
