INDIANAPOLIS — A range of global and local experts will present their insights on how brain science and artistic processes inform one another during a one-and-half day symposium, "21st Century Great Conversations in Neuroscience, Art and Related Therapeutics."
This symposium, organized by Juliet King, MA, ATR-BC, LPC, LMHC, of the Herron School of Art and Design and Indiana University School of Medicine, will feature presentations by three international experts and three panel discussions with a mix of Indianapolis-based and global leaders in the fields of neuroscience, art and related therapeutics.
Aimed at supporting the overall health and amelioration of disease for patients, their caregivers, families and friends, the symposium highlights the collaborative approach of the IUPUI schools of Art and Design, Medicine, Engineering, Informatics, Health and Rehabilitation Services, Nursing, and Liberal Arts.
“The field of neuroeasthetics is still very new and underscores why medicine needs art and art needs medicine and the life sciences,” said King. “A strength of IUPUI as a research institution is our work in the health and life sciences; it is with active minds and a collective spirit that seven schools from the IUPUI campus present this symposium featuring global thought leaders where these disciplines intersect.”
The symposium will also feature the debut of exhibitions by Herron faculty members, Stefan Petranek and Greg Hull.
