“We hope you will join us on March 5th for our fourth annual ASaP Symposium: Designing the Next Steps, which explores holistic, artistic interventions for diverse populations through a day of workshops, community classes, discussion, design, lecture/demonstration, and art installations. This year’s focus is on the power of design and the implementation of arts programming in the medical field.
ASaP Symposium 2016 is free and open to the public, but pre-registration in the workshops and discussion groups is required. Please visit our website to register and for more details about the events. The Symposium is presented in collaboration with American Dance Legacy Initiative.
The Symposium will be of particular interest to students, educators, health providers, artists, creative arts therapists, neuroscientists, biomedical engineers, anthropologists, and public health professionals. We hope each participant comes away from the symposium having engaged in enriching and explorative conversations and possibly ready to implement an idea that’s been waiting to be ignited.
Artists and Scientists as Partners (ASaP) was born four years ago to work with medical and arts practitioners, fostering creative, integrative health practices. Since then we have offered workshops at the Cogut Center for the Humanities and the Warren Alpert Medical School; taught a pre-clinical elective in the medical school; launched Dance for our Aging Population (DAPpers) a series of classes for seniors; have taught four undergraduate courses and are currently teaching a fifth.
In that time, we have also come to understand and celebrate the immense mutual understanding and respect that already exists among artists and scientists and believe the two have much in common.”
