Join UBC Psychology researchers at the Museum of Vancouver’s “The Happy Show”

Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show is a thought-provoking and engaging exhibition that inspires happiness. It transcends the boundary between art and design. It takes over museum galleries and in-between spaces – stairwells, hallways, and restrooms – in order to ask: what makes us happy?

UBC Psychology researchers Aaron Weidman and Ashley Whillans are taking part in this exciting community event by sharing the science behind their happiness research.
