Art Beyond Sight: Multimodal Approaches to Learning, Creativity and Communication
September 28-30, 2007
Art Education for the Blind and The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Location: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City
Following the sold-out 2005 conference on multimodal approaches to learning, Art Education for the Blind (AEB) and The Metropolitan Museum of Art are organizing a second international conference to further address the challenges faced by educators, artists, museum professionals, architects and designers to create multimodal learning opportunities and environments that better serve all audiences. This conference will address multiple modalities in the following disciplines: cognitive psychology and neuroscience; universal/human-centered design, products and environments in the 21st century; art history, contemporary art and new media; and education for people with sensory and other disabilities. The conference brings together educators, museum curators, psychologists, neuroscientists, architects, designers, anthropologists, scientists, and others concerned with multimodal learning, disability, art and education.
Teachers College, Columbia University provides a continuing education credit for this conference. See registration form for details.
