Program Synopsis
Hosted and narrated by Lisa Kudrow, Arts & The Mind makes the point that art is not a "luxury," but central to the development of the human brain in youth and keeping our minds sharp as we get older.

"At a time in our history when arts education is being diminished in our schools, these films document how the arts positively shape young minds, and keep our minds agile as we age," says host Lisa Kudrow. "I am pleased and proud to help share this message with viewers of all ages."

Weaving together stories from childhood and older age, Arts & The Mind journeys across America, showcasing some of the nation's most innovative and successful arts programs plus revealing the insights and work of leading American neurologists, psychologists and educators. This program illuminates:

* How the arts can improve children's school performance and build both creativity and competency - featuring stories from the Inner-City Arts program in Los Angeles' "skid row" and Baltimore Symphony conductor Marin Alsop's renowned OrchKids Program;
* How teenagers find meaning and hope through poetry at Get Lit, an L.A. program run by actress Diane Lane and supported by actor Tim Robbins;
* How music binds the generations in Appalachia;
* How the multi-generational Kairos Dance Theater in Minneapolis brings together dancers from 9 to 90, and whose Dancing Heart program provides stimulation and inspiration to those in nursing homes;
* How New York City's Museum of Modern Art "Meet Me at MoMA" program makes the arts accessible to people with dementia.

Throughout Arts & The Mind experts provide scientific context for everything we see. Researchers such as Dr. Antonio Damasio (University of Southern California), Dr. Ellen Winner (Boston College), Dr. James Catterall (UCLA), Dr. Charles Limb (Johns Hopkins Medical Institute) and Dr. Peter Davies (Albert Einstein Medical Center) reveal the latest research on the impact of the arts on human development; why the arts improve children's learning and achievement in school; and evidence to confirm how the arts keep middle-aged and older brains agile and alert. Included in these sections are the latest medical imaging techniques that illustrate their findings.
