Conversations@Moore: Caring for Communities - Health + Art
Conversations@Moore: Caring for Communities: Practicing at the Intersection of Health + Art
Tuesday, September 12th 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
This event was part of the Conversations @ Moore series organized by Graduate Studies program.
Continuing with our exploration of artists working across diverse disciplines as a means to engage curiosity and participate more deeply in society, this event focuses on art and design practices that intersect with public and community health. The evening’s three speakers were introduced by Dean Patti Phillips. Starting with Aaron Levy providing an overview of questions brought about by Slought’s new Health Ecologies Lab project; we will then hear from Terri Kapsalis who has practiced as an artist, researcher and health educator developing projects such as Jane Addams' Travel Medicine Kit for the Hull-House Museum in Chicago; Rob Peagler will share his experiences developing design projects around subjects ranging from end-of-life care to sexual health and wellness. Finally, Megan Voeller, who directs the Humanities program at Thomas Jefferson University, moderated a discussion between the three presenters that focused on questions that emerge from their presentations.
This event was hosted by the Socially-Engaged Art graduate program at Moore. For more information on Graduate Studies at Moore and our upcoming February 1 fellowship consideration deadline see
