Museums are places where people use their brains to learn, be inspired, feel deeply, and have fun.
To help inform how this magic comes together, what can the nation's top brain scientists share that could help the museum field craft deeper engagement with visitors?
As part of our ongoing series of events designed to help clients and friends of the firm gain insights and inspiration from outside the field of museums, Reach Advisors is collaborating with the Johns Hopkins Brain Science Institute to host a special event during the AAM Annual Meeting.
Our session this year brings together six of the nation's top brain scientists from Johns Hopkins (rated as the #1 hospital in America for 21 years in a row) for an intimate, PowerPoint-free conversation. These scientists want to be grilled by museum leaders about their research on topics such as:
- How do basic cognitive functions support our creative and artistic selves?
- What is special about the neural activity patterns evoked by beauty?
- What parts of the brain turn on and off during creative engagement, and what can that tell us about the nature of creativity?
- What evidence exists that studying the arts and humanities improves children's attention levels, leading to stronger school performance?
- What kind of research can get funded involving creativity, the arts, and brain science?
The event will take place on Tuesday, May 21, 2013,
from 4:00 to 6:00 pm,
with the discussion starting at 4:30 pm.
