This symposium will begin with several short presentations that respond to the questions:

What is pain?

What is art?

What value lies at the intersection?

Presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion about the opportunities and challenges that arise when these practices - pain management and art - meet in terms of scholarly research, program development and clinical interventions.
