We know that creativity and culture are essential parts of a healthy society. But what now? What needs to happen at a personal, organisational, and political level to bring creativity and health together and cultivate change?
09/11 – 12/11/2023
10.00 – 19.00
Can art be an ally of the medical sciences? How can museums and other cultural actors contribute to health and well-being? How can creativity contribute to innovation in health?
Using a transdisciplinary approach, this international conference aims to share and reflect analytically and critically on the practices that are at the intersection between art and medicine. Through dialogue between professionals and researchers from different countries and disciplinary fields – from medicine, nursing, and neuroscience to imaging in medicine and microbiology, as well as art, design, and architecture – the aim is to open a debate on the present, but also to look towards the future, seeking to understand how art and science, two areas of knowledge often considered as distinct, can be combined and contribute to change and to a better quality of life.
