Faith, Art & Protest - 'Two out of three ain't bad' Panel Discussion

Event Date: 
Monday, September 23, 2013 - 7:00pm

It is in liturgy and ritual that people of faith both express and create themselves as a community of values and actions. Liturgy has traditionally been a site for profound artistic creation, and even now much secular art, especially performance,and indeed many social justice protests, include liturgical elements. But to balance the demands of religious faith, artistic integrity and political commitment is no easy task.

Panellists Sherman Hesselgrave (Church of the Holy Trinity), Maggie Helwig (novelist and priest at Saint Stephen-in-the-Fields),and playwright Sean Morley Dixon will talk about negotiating the tensions and intersections of faith, art, and activism in musical,literary, and liturgical contexts.

This event is part of the Faith, Art and Activism series, co-sponsored by St Stephen-in-the-Fields and the Trinity College Chaplaincy;

Free; all welcome!

The talk will be followed by a site-specific service of Compline (Night Prayer).
