The International Bioethics Forum is dedicated to sharing scientific information and considering related social and ethical implications. Many questions related to creativity will be explored, including:

  • From the perspectives of neuroscience, psychology, the arts and other disciplines, what do we know about the creative process and the state of human consciousness?
  • Are there techniques and environments that effectively develop and nourish creativity in all of us?
  • What is the impact of science and technology on the creative process?

Experts in the fields of creativity, consciousness, and compassion will share their work through presentations and informal conversations throughout the forum. Well-known authors, artist Lynda Barry and Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard, will be joined by other highly regarded researchers and creative professionals, including journalist Erik Davis and Drs. James Fadiman, Rex Jung, Scott Barry Kaufman, David Krakauer and Alfonso Montuori. Steve Paulson, Wisconsin Public Radio/Public Radio International Executive Producer, will moderate the event. Paulson produced the Peabody Award-winning To the Best of Our Knowledge interactive series Meet Your Mind: A User’s Guide to the Science of Consciousness.

Forum registrants also have the opportunity to join a presenter for a small group discussion over dinner on Thursday evening, April 25.

Creative Insight will be held at the BioPharmaceutical Technology Center (5445 East Cheryl Parkway) on the Promega Corporation campus in Madison (Fitchburg), Wisconsin.

In addition to the BTC Institute and Promega, Michael Best & Friedrich LLP and the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation are Platinum Sponsors of this event.

The forum is open to the general public but limited to 350 participants. For more information or to register, please visit: http://www.btci.org/bioethics/default.html.
