The goal of Train the Brain is to help Palm Beach County residents understand that taking care of the brain is just as important as taking care of the body. By sharing experiences in the Neuroarts—the study of how the brain and body respond to art—Palm Health Foundation is demonstrating how accessible this form of self-care can be to everyone.
Palm Health Foundation is taking the lead in this rapidly growing field by launching the Palm Beach County Neuroarts Collaborative to bring together local leaders in brain science and the arts, including the FAU Stiles-Nicholson Brain Institute, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County, and The Palm Beaches.
Throughout October, three free community events will demonstrate the connections among the brain, body, and behavior while celebrating Palm Beach County’s local arts and culture community.
On October 19, the A.D. Henderson University School in Boca Raton will set the scene for “The Art of Learning: A Cross-Curricular Art Show & Symposium” from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. At this free event, Palm Beach County students, educators, and a neuroscientist dive into topics like brain health and stress management, as well as the connection between art and brain science. Registration includes light snacks and beverages.
At “The Power of Public Art: A Lunch & Learn,” held at Boynton Beach Arts & Cultural Center on October 24 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., local brain experts and artists will discuss art’s impact on health and mental wellness. The free event will also feature a public art tour and lunch.
Train the Brain’s series of events concludes with “The Science of Singing” at Cox Science Center and Aquarium in West Palm Beach on October 26, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Guests will sing-along and learn about what happens in our brains when people sing together. Registration includes light snacks and beverages.
