Psychologist Carol Ryff will provide a social scientist’s perspective on what we know and what we need to know about relationships among the arts, cultural participation, and lifelong health and well-being. Three museum professionals will share ideas for developing practices that more deeply explore the potential relevance of well-being. The panel will also address ways that museums and scientific researchers might push together into new realms of practice and research to demonstrate museums’ power to positively impact well-being.

Carol Ryff, Karen Grøn, Line Chayder, Rainey Tisdale
