NeuroArts Blueprint: Advancing the Science of Arts, Health, and Wellbeing

The NeuroArts Blueprint is a bold roadmap for bringing together science, the arts, and technology to build a sustainable new field that promotes individual and community health—and offers enormous benefits to all.

This report was developed as a partnership between the Johns Hopkins International Arts + Mind Lab Center for Applied Neuroaesthetics and the Aspen Institute’s Health, Medicine & Society Program.

Neuroarts is the cross-disciplinary study of how the arts and aesthetic experiences measurably change the body, brain, and behavior and how this knowledge is translated into specific practices that advance health and wellbeing. The Blueprint is a detailed and richly cited guide to the action steps needed to cultivate this nascent field. You can learn more about our project at:

On Wednesday, December 1, 2021, from 3:30-4:15 pm ET, please join us for an online preview and celebration of this transformative action plan. The program will include a stellar line-up of speakers including Renée Fleming, soprano and artistic advisor to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health as well as an opening performance by the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater.

Registration is open to all, so share this invitation widely and help us build the neuroarts community. We look forward to seeing you there! Register
