Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

Explore the frontiers of fear at the Dana Centre, from private phobias to mass panic.

In our increasingly safe society, why do we have so many fears? Explore the ways fear affects us all, from private phobias to mass panic. From the creepy to the downright terrifying, face your fears at the Dana Centre this November.

Join musician and acoustic engineer Sarah Angliss to explore Uncanny Valley, where innocent imitation confronts the frontiers of fear. Meet Clara 2.0, a dolly with a difference, and discover why realistic robots become uncomfortably strange.

Find the limits of your fear as Tim May introduces his brood of spiders. Do you have any phobias? If so, meet psychologist Peter Naish, who will explain how hypnotherapy can help people overcome deep-rooted fear and anxiety.
