In this talk I offer a virtual preview of the exhibition Talking Brains, set to open to the public in April 2017 in Barcelona, before continuing on a world tour to include Singapore and Japan. the result of a multidisciplinary international collaborative effort between linguists, curators, architects and designers, this exhibition aims to bring state-of-the-art linguistic insights to a general public, in particular parents and children. My hope is that this can serve as a case study in how to make sense of knowledge exchange, and as a source of inspiration for directions and dimensions in which we may achieve maximum impact in our and related disciplines.
