Imagination is not imaginary: Betes Project performance-dialogue-workshop

April 5, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Michele Rivkin-Fish and I write to invite you to the puppet artist Marina Tsaplina’s “BetesProject” performance-dialogue-workshop this coming Thursday. It’s a wonderful cross-disciplinary investigation of how we can rethink medical education and expand areas for medicine-related research to include the arts.

Here is the description of the event, which will take place Thursday, April 5, 4-6 p.m. in Gerrard Hall:

Imagination is not imaginary: What does art doand why does it matter in medicine?

A response by an artist and patient to the recent announcement by the American Association of Medical Colleges for the need for Humanities and Arts in Medical Education. A workshop-performance-dialogue to interrogate how Art is in and of itself a research practice.

Please let us know if you can attend — we hope so! We’d be grateful, too, if you would forward the flyer to interested colleagues!
