Art In Mind: Explore the interplay between arts and science, during Science week, Saturday 18 Novemb
Venue: Highlanes Gallery
Sponsor: Science Foundation Ireland
Admission: FREE

Art seems to impact us all differently.

But how does it do that?

How does art impact our minds?

Can it influence our mental state? And does science affect the process of art making?

Research has shown that art can impact our minds, influence our mental state and even improve the way we learn. There is also evidence that scientific discoveries have influenced art making throughout history. Take the camera obscura, for instance, and the impact it had on the painter’s process during the Renaissance. Art and science are inextricably linked

Join us at 'Art in Mind' to explore more about the positive impact that art can have on our beautiful minds. With a fascinating panel of artists, psychologists and neuroscientists, live experiments and lots of conversation, this event will highlight the connections between science and art, and will give you a deeper appreciation of the value of creativity on our minds.

Contributors for 'Art in Mind' include Daniel Glaser, Neuroscientist and Director, Science Gallery London and Clara Rose, Music Therapist, Singer/Songwriter. The event will be hosted by Scientist and Artist, Niamh Shaw.
