Information & Registration

We are pleased to announce our Conference Keynote Speaker
Mary Helen Immordino-Yang

"From moments after birth, people develop within social relationships—we come to the world biologically ready to engage with other people, and the emotions we feel in social contexts shape how we feel about ourselves, how we experience our own lives, and how we create art that reflects and represents these experiences. In this talk, Mary Helen Immordino-Yang will discuss the neurobiology of social emotions like compassion, admiration, inspiration and gratitude, including their deep visceral roots in the feeling and regulation of the body and consciousness, and their propensity to heighten one’s own subjective sense of self awareness. By examining neuroimaging data from adults alongside creative works by children, she will argue that creative thinking is grounded in the feeling of emotions that foster social connectedness and self reflection, and is driven by an inherent desire to make culturally appropriate meaning of one’s experiences in the world."
