GV Art & Mind Symposium 15
Tuesday 12 March 2013

Speaker: Dr Daniel Glaser
Head of Engaging Science, Wellcome Trust
and from May 2013
Director of Science Engagement, King’s Cultural Institute, KCL

People have appealed to art to bolster the creative economy, open up science to ever wider publics and heal the sick (among other miracles). Other people worry about creeping instrumentalism undermining the practice of art for art's sake. Particularly when art is supported by science funding organisations, whether directly or indirectly, these questions can become quite heated. I will attempt to shed some light drawing on examples from my time at Wellcome Trust and beyond.
