What We're Watching: Advancing the NeuroArts Blueprint: Progress Report

From Aspen Institute: Join us Monday, March 13 at 12:30pm-1:30 pm (EDT) for a webinar to review the progress and future plans of the NeuroArts Blueprint initiative.

Dedicated to strengthening the essential role that the arts can play in advancing health and wellbeing, neuroarts has captured the attention of an expanding network of researchers, practitioners, arts groups, health providers, and other public sector and private sector organizations. We are honored to serve as a hub for the growing body of knowledge they are generating, and to act as a catalyst to inspire more.

In the year since publishing the NeuroArts Blueprint in December 2021, we have made important strides in our shared understanding of how the arts can be used to expand the boundaries of medicine. A newly released Progress Report updates our collective efforts to implement the recommendations and action steps detailed in that foundational document. Learn how we are advancing research, practice, education, policymaking, advocacy, leadership, and communications in this emerging field.

The Blueprint Progress Report will be presented by the initiative’s codirectors, Susan Magsamen (Johns Hopkins University International Arts + Mind Lab Center for Applied Neuroaesthetics) and Ruth J. Katz (Health, Medicine & Society Program of the Aspen Institute). Renee Fleming, NeuroArts Blueprint cochair, will offer a special welcome.

Also joining us will be NeuroArts Blueprint advisors Emmeline Edwards (Division of Extramural Research, National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, National Institutes of Health) and Sunil Iyengar (Office of Research & Analysis, National Endowment for the Arts) to share their views on the state of the field.
