Emotions, brain, and art

Lauri Nummemaa

Emotions promote our well-being in different survival-salient situations. They are typically triggered by biologically relevant signals such as threats and physical harm or rewards including food consumption or social interaction. However, also highly abstract pursuits such as viewing visual art, reading prose, listening to music or may trigger strong and vivid emotions. In my talk I present anoverview on brain mechanisms supporting human emotions, and discuss how and why different forms of art may trigger emotions and aesthetic experiences in the brain and the body. Finally, I discuss the potential functions and beneficial effects of art exposure on human brain functioning and health.

Nonverbal behaviour and children under 6 years

Päivi Aura

Studies have found that the nonverbal behaviour and the understanding of nonverbal communication within small babies don’t have “racial” or socio-cultural characteristics. The assumption of the studies is that the babies don’t yet have a strong socio-cultural behaviour defined by their home country. The older the children grow, the more they adapt to the behavioural models of their society and culture. In my talk I will reflect these topics on the basis of my experience of creating dance performances and performing for children under 6 years of age.

Sisteracademy

Gry Worre

Sisters Hope is a Copenhagen-based performance-group and movement with an associated international troupe of performers from various backgrounds. Sisters Hope was founded in 2007 by Gry Worre Hallberg and Anna Lawaetz and is currently led by Gry Worre Hallberg. Sisters Hope operate in the intersection of performance art, research, activism and pedagogy. They draw on immersion and intervention when they manifest on the stages of everyday life and beyond. They are working proactively toward manifesting a more sensuous and poetic educational system. Currently working to open and unfold more sensuous modes of learning in the large-scale Nordic project Sisters Academy (2014 – 2020).

Sisters Academy is a school in a world and society where the sensuous and poetic mode of being is at the center of all action and interaction. It defines the primary mode of being and is the values on which all societal institutions are building – including the school. Thus Sisters Academy is the school in what we term a Sensuous society – A potential new world arising from the post-economical and ecological crisis
