A clash of doctrines is not a disaster, it is an opportunity 
            Alfred North Whitehead

Ideas make a difference. We believe in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and the world. People who put ideas into action can inspire the rest of us to go and do the same.

The Interalia Centre offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world's most exciting thinkers to a community of the curious to engage with ideas and each other.  

The Interalia Centre (founded 1990) provides an international forum for the exchange of ideas, dedicated to promoting inquiry into, and open-minded discussion about, the interactions between the Arts, Sciences and Consciousness, regarding each as an open and systematic inquiry into the deep structure of human experience. Its aims are based on the belief that far from being mutually exclusive activities, art, science and consciousness represent different yet complimentary ways of looking at and understanding the world.

The Interalia Centre’s activities have consistently demonstrated that creative understanding can be extended through exploring and equating these diverse fields of knowledge through ‘free-flowing’ communication. 

Through innovative events, The Interalia Centre has successfully established a dialogue between the Arts, Sciences and Consciousness at a level accessible to all. By bringing together recognised experts, to address a common theme in front of wide ranging audiences, The Interalia Centre has exemplified that a greater understanding and awareness can be created by crossing the boundaries between the Arts, Sciences and Consciousness.
