Hubbub is an international collective of social scientists, artists, humanities researchers, scientists, broadcasters, public engagement professionals and mental health experts. We explore the dynamics of rest, noise, tumult, activity and work, as they operate in mental health, the neurosciences, the arts and the everyday. We are based in London and recently completed the first residency of The Hub at Wellcome Collection from October 2014 to July 2016.

Our interdisciplinary project was awarded a £1m grant by Wellcome. The grant-holding institution is Durham University.

The Hub at Wellcome Collection is an exciting new space that provides resources and a stimulating space for researchers and other creative minds to collaborate on projects exploring medicine in historical and cultural contexts. The Hub is designed to make a central contribution to the Trust’s vision of improving human and animal health and is a flagship interdisciplinary environment that nurtures this approach.
