How Our Brain Innovates Thinking
Webinar on art and neuroscience
March 15-21 2021
We are glad to announce that Numero Cromatico is one of the two selected Italian organisations to host an event on the occasion of the Brain Awareness Week 2021, supported by Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives (DABI), European Dana Alliance for the Brain (EDAB), Dana Foundation and Federation European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) to help promote brain sciences worldwide. How Our Brain Innovates Thinking consists of 6 online lessons - free and open to the public - and a workshop with the Istituto Omnicomprensivo di Orte. The event will take place from 15th to 21st March 2021.
The functioning and wellbeing of the human body are very relevant topics nowadays, not only in relation to medicine but also to other disciplinary fields such as art.
In recent years, on the one hand, artists and academics in the field of humanities focused their attention on the cognitive aspects of perception, bodily experiences, empathy and art psychology; on the other hand, there is an ever-growing interest from the scientific world towards the arts, architecture and design.
Thus, the time is apt to outline a new hybrid territory between art and neuroscience, with the aim of training a more conscious citizenship on the challenges that the world is facing.
The event consists of 6 online lessons, free and open to the public, and a workshop with the Istituto Omnicomprensivo di Orte.
The event will take place from 15th to 21st March 2021.
