BoK2019  will continue to emphasize the interdisciplinary intersections of art and theories of cognition and foster conversations that increase the potential for knowledge transfer and celebrate diverse forms of embodied expertise. The conference thematics will be expanded to emphasize cultures of practice and communities of practitioners that offer perspectives on inclusion, diversity / neurodiversity and disability.

BoK2019 will foreground social cognition, enabling the productive tensions between neuroscience and enactive theories of cognition to be drawn out for analysis. The aim is to encourage the discussion of art as a process of social cognition and address the gap between descriptions of embodied cognition and the co-construction of lived experience.
