What We're Watching: Advancing the Science of Arts, Health, and Wellbeing

From NeuroArts Blueprint: In the 15 months since releasing the NeuroArts Blueprint in December 2021, the NeuroArts Blueprint initiative has made important strides in our shared understanding of how the arts can be used to expand the boundaries of medicine. The March 2023 Progress Report updates our collective efforts to implement the recommendations and action steps detailed in that foundational document.

This work and plans for future action steps were the focus of our March 13, 2023 webinar, Building the Field of Neuroarts, 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).

Renée Fleming, NeuroArts Blueprint cochair, offered a special welcome. 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) also joined the conversation to highlight additional activities that are helping to build the field of neuroarts.

Learn how neuroarts research, practice, education, policymaking, advocacy, leadership, and communications are advancing in this emerging field.
