GenPEM + Catalyst Engage at Aeronaut

Thursday, July 11, 2019 from 6:30-8:30 pm

A select group of GenPEM attended a Catalyst Engage event at Aeronaut Brewery How We See What We See, a conversation with PEM's Neuroscientist Tedi Asher, PhD. This event was free and open to the public and hosted by Catalyst Engage, a volunteer led outreach initiative of Catalyst Conversations which aims to engage new audiences and extend the conversation in new spaces.

Neuroscientist researcher Tedi Asher may be the only neuroscientist in the US working with curators in an art museum. She is working with the curators there to explore and evaluate the visitor’s experience and to help change the way art is presented and understood. This includes not only the type of exhibits, but also the kinds of programming developed in tandem with the exhibitions. Read more about the Neuroscience Initiative at PEM.
