 Why Your Memories Are Wrong
Sometimes we can feel absolutely, completely, 100% certain that we remember something that happened- and it never happened. Most of the time, there are no negative consequences for ‘false memories’; it’s just a funny thing our brains do. But other times, they can have real and lasting impacts on people’s lives. Professor Kimberley Wade is a cognitive psychologist whose research explores the causes of autobiographical memory distortions. She will help us to understand how this phenomenon occurs and why it might actually be good for us.
Hosted by Sanderson Jones, the co-founder of Sunday Assembly and founder of The Lifefulness Project, this assembly will feature mind-blowing sing-alongs with the Sunday Assembly London band, poetry, and a talk from a member of our community who is “Trying Their Best”. Please stay after for tea, biscuits and lively conversation with our community.
This will be a hybrid event, which means it will be held in-person as well as live-streamed to YouTube. For in-person accessibility, we will have a BSL interpreter, and Conway Hall has step-free access and an induction loop.

Our assemblies are free to attend, but we kindly request that you support us so we can continue to keep it open to those who cannot afford to contribute.!/
