-a sudden enlargement of the world-
A Conference of Faith & Art
Hosted by Eckerd College & Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church
April 19th – April 22nd, 2018
at Eckerd College
Free and open to the public
Art has long been a medium for the exploration of faith, a place where mystery can unfold without boundary or bottom. In the moments of dogmatic slumber or idolatrous devotion, the arts come as a waking savior, reminding us that God is boundless and ever-moving. This April, Eckerd College and Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church, along with co-sponsors NEXT Church and Image Journal, will be hosting a four-day conference to examine and explore this topic.
With the theme of “Telling Stories” as guide, this conference will employ discussions, poetry readings, presentations, visual arts, and theater to examine art’s power to confront current narratives, allow people to tell their own stories, and explore new ways of talking about God, faith, and social responsibility. Presenters include contemporary poet and member of the Gila River Indian Tribe Natalie Diaz, New York Times best-selling author and Episcopal priest Barbara Brown Taylor, and more.
Designed for anyone interested in the imaginative and prophetic intersection of faith and arts, we hope you’ll join us April 19th — April 22nd. You can find a link with more information and registration HERE.
