Abstract: Anne Beffel is a practicing “public artist” and professor of art at Syracuse University. She creates opportunities for empathetic exchanges through art. As a 2008 Contemplative Practice Fellow she created the course Contemplative Arts and Society to explore the intersection of art, contemplative practice, and social psychology. In our April webinar, Beffel discussed students’ experiences with a number of contemplative and creative art practices in preparation for designing their own “daily practices,” which they document using media arts.
