Week Three Theme :: Art and Democracy | Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Art: A Glimpse into the Divine

Saturday, July 11, 2020

Artist, advocate, activist, citizen. What is the role of art — and the artist — in an active democracy? In this week, we hear from artists raising the social consciousness, challenging the status quo and engaging communities large and small toward meaningful action.

  • We consider how art and artmaking serves as a catalyst for dissent and change and has the unique ability to bring community together to heal following trauma.
  • How are the arts uniquely positioned to move the conversation forward, when other attempts at dialogue fail?

Interfaith Lecture Theme 

Art inspires, art teaches, art speaks, art energizes, art soothes, art heals, art empowers. Art underlies and underlines the commonalities of human existence. In this week we look into the spiritual power of art to glimpse the divine, in all its forms, and change the world.
