We bridge the gap between Artists and Scientists to create a harmonious Partnership.
ASaP is an organization housed at Brown University that facilitates educational programs on the topic of arts and health. We work with both medical and arts practitioners to foster creative, integrative health practices. Our agenda demands for a (greater) recognition and valuation of the patient’s creative voice, and the knowledge they bring to medical practice. We believe the arts are a way to foster this voice.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart - Helen Keller.
Through performance, workshops, classes, art installations, and presentations our intergenerational group will examine those best and invisible things to which Helen Keller refers. By considering beauty beyond our visual, auditory, and tactile senses, we will discover a deeper universal definition of beauty and co-create and experience moments of beauty and truth. We will also explore and experience how beauty inspires healing.
