Panelists Including:

In this virtual W&K Forum, academics, doctors, and artists explore the relationship between creative arts, health research, and practice. The panel debates methodological challenges in the design of research studies on arts, wellbeing, and health as well as limitations on the measures employed, which seriously undermine the respective conclusions. Furthermore, it places the findings in the context of growing concerns in medical and social science research about the quality and usefulness of systematic reviews and meta-analyses and questionable standards even with regard to peer reviewed scientific literature. The forum will also try to address topics from practice, affecting hospitals, caregivers, and policy makers. Finally, it offers some positive recommendations and perspectives for future research and practice in the field of arts and health.

Stephen Clift is Professor Em. of Health Education at Canterbury Christ Church University, Visiting Professor at York St John University and Professorial Fellow at Royal Society for Public Health, London, UK.

W&K-FORUM: Places of Exchange for Research, Cultural Policy and Artistic Practice
What happens at the interface between science and art? What different perspectives do scientists and artists take on one and the same topic? Where are the theses of the often only seemingly opposite poles based, where do they refute each other? Salzburg can look back on a long and successful cultural and scientific tradition. With the series of events W&K-Forum, the inter-university institution for science and art also welcomes the art-interested Salzburg public several times a year. At changing venues with different cooperation partners, the forum offers a platform for controversial discourse on cultural and socio-political issues. Outstanding personalities from different disciplines are invited – recognized experts and charismatic mediators of artistic practice and theory-oriented science, who present and discuss the respective topic in a broad social context.
