In this session, participants will engage in a moderated panel discussion during which panelists will offer arts-based approaches as effective and meaningful methods of engagement and discovery from data collection to dissemination and translation. Faculty and scholars from the Center for Arts in Medicine will introduce narrative examples of arts-based approaches to assessing need, seeding and sustaining ongoing research and advancing research outcomes in a range of settings and geographical locations. Examples include arts-based approaches to research in hospitals, schools, juvenile justice, public health, and community spaces. Specifically, the panel will frame the discussion by describing the application of arts-based approaches to build trust at each stage of research that is community-engaged, iterative and bidirectional in nature.
Following this developmental arc of a research study, obstacles and successes will be mined for strategies to employ the arts as a mechanism for establishing trust. At the end of this session, participants will have engaged in didactic and dialogical learning through facilitated discussion on building trust in research through the arts.
