10.45 11.45                 Input from members: Themes for discussion


10.45 11.15: How to build an interdisciplinary body of knowledge that can help to develop improved methods for ‘art interventions’, as well as formulate a joint framework of understanding than can be grasped and embraced by health care professionals, art professionals (artists, pedagogues, etc.) and decision-makers (politicians etc.) alike?

Presenter: Max Liljefors, Lund University


11.15 – 11.45: With focus on artistic research concerning sound practice in a therapeutic/mental health context, one of the issues that keep coming up in dialogue with traditional healthcare institutions are the definitions, methods and expectations of “evidence-based” assessment and knowledge-production. Most of the methods available are based on pre- and post-workshop assessment and strongly divided between generalist somatic measurements (blood-pressure, cortisone levels, etc.) and subjective interview based assessment, which find often strength in the size of its sample, more than in the effective terms of its questioning.

Presenter: Eduardo Abrantes, Roskilde University
