Wading Into the Deep End 

Wednesday, Apr 24 2013
Is it true that neurological conditions like depression, anxiety, dementia, and schizophrenia can heighten people’s creativity and contribute to their artistic output? The Bay Area Art and Science Interdisciplinary Collaborative Sessions is presenting a program that will explore the interactions between art and diverse neurological conditions. Hear from a photographer father who collaborates artistically with his autistic son, and from an artist who works with developmentally disabled individuals to help them pursue creative careers. Katherine Sherwood will be speaking about how a cerebral hemorrhage changed her art, and UC Berkeley Professor Walter J. Freeman, M.D., will speak on how “brain chaos” surmounts challenges. Live music from Bay Area cellist Hannah Addario-Berry will help explore the intersection of art and psychology.
Mon., May 6, 7-9 p.m., 2013
