This network project is to support interdisciplinary exploration of the potential for identification of shared research agendas within the contexts of visual art, music and medicine.
The project will bring together expert researchers in the fields of surgery, fine art and contemporary jazz to consider the application of understanding and methodologies derived from surgical simulation environments beyond the initial research domain.
The period of funded research also seeks to provide new critical perspectives on the nature of surgery to inform and influence further research into clinical training and simulation.
