Focus in the program will be to highlight the importance of art research and education,
particularly in times of social unrest and climate change. It is through the arts that the scope of human experience around
creativity, innovation, empathy, culture, and knowledge is learned, expressed, and distributed, both for the common good and
the development of the individual. By highlighting collaborative research between artists, humanists, scientists and scholars
at large, the symposium will attempt to demonstrate the important role of art research in academia and beyond.
