Artivate 2020 will be a practice-based Summit that inspires inquiry around the integration of the arts, science, spirituality and human wellness. The  purpose of the Summit is to acknowledge the divide between arts, science and spirituality, and to propose that practice is a powerful mindset to explore and to renew among a diverse group of innovators and leaders.
