a2ru National Conference
November 3-5, 2016 • University of Colorado Denver

The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) advances the full range of arts-integrative research, curricula, programs, and creative practice to acknowledge, articulate, and expand the vital role of higher education in our global society.

Alphachimp provided graphic recording for two half-day workshops:

1. Entrepreneurship in the Arts: Essence, Exemplars, and Creating a University-Based Initiative
This workshop highlights the essence of entrepreneurship and its many flavors in the arts and design context, while describing the operations of a few leading arts entrepreneurship programs, and providing suggestions for creating a program at the university level.

2. The Arts in Health
The arts constitute a domain long neglected by wellbeing indicator systems. Investigating how to measure the arts' impact on human wellbeing integrates the arts into broader, holistic discussions about individual and societal health. This panel will discuss current research and practice exploring the arts' contributions to wellbeing.
