“Drawing What Matters”: A Comics Workshop

In this workshop, participants will use comics as a modality to identify and reflect on the neuroethics issues that they find most pressing. The workshop will be composed almost entirely of hands-on comics-making activities, guided by three facilitators — Drs. Ann Fink, Gillian Hue and Tim Brown — with important experience in neuroethics, education, the arts, and social justice. This engagement is a means of building relationships in solidarity, and of recognizing historically marginalized voices, forms of expression, and narratives.
