A great day for all art lovers at the Highlanes Gallery

'Art in Mind' - Explore the Interplay between the Arts and Science takes place at Highlanes Gallery, on Saturday 18 November from 3.00pm-4.30pm

Art seems to impact us all differently. But how does it do that? How does art impact our minds? Can it influence our mental state? And does science affect the process of art making?

Join the crew at 'Art in Mind' at Highlanes Gallery to explore more about the positive impact that art can have on our minds. There will be a fascinating panel of artists, psychologists and neuroscientists, live experiments and lots of conversation, this event will highlight the connections between science and art, and will give you a deeper appreciation of the value of creativity on our minds.

Contributors for 'Art in Mind' Drogheda include Daniel Glaser, Neuroscientist and Director, Science Gallery London and Clara Rose, Music Therapist, Singer/Songwriter. The event will be hosted by Scientist and Artist, Niamh Shaw.

The event is free, but pre-booking is required through Eventbrite, or by telephoning the gallery on 041-9803311.
