In this paper, International Arts+Minds Lab(IAM Lab), part of the Brain Science Institute at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, proposes Impact Thinking, a consensus framework for documenting, disseminating, and scaling evidence-based arts + mind approaches to health, wellbeing, and learning. Developed with the input of more than 30 brain scientists, artists, architects, and designers, Impact Thinking is an important first step to building a unified field focused on impact.
The International Arts + Mind Lab (IAM Lab) was formed in 2016 to address this challenge and advance the use of the arts as an effective solution for solving intractable societal issues.
