In early April, Deborah Rifkin led a workshop at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angelos, CA.

Participants from the fields of dance, music, visual arts, theater, sociology, history, and communication studies explored the implications of the cognitive studies for teaching, creating, and performing in the arts.
