Originally conceived as an open mic that would reach beyond the standards of music, poetry, dance, and stand up comedy, Open Brain now features all forms of art.

This includes arts typically reserved for galleries, including illustration, painting, photography, and film—as well as less conventional forms like storytelling, hardware hacks, software development, cooking, massage therapy, rocket designs, and conversations around everything from artificial intelligence and genetics to the role of art in society.

Open Brain in Sri Lanka was initiated by Ohan Hominis and Michael Ketigian who are currently living in Colombo having travelled from New York.
