Poetry Reading Event of the Spirit of Art/ Art of Spirit festival.

Through the arts, poetry, music and architecture, religious traditions around the world have communicated their most important values and organised their cultural life. Many contemporary artists also engage with religious narratives and ideas in a critical or affirmative way. Some see creativity and enthusiasm as forms of a spiritual existence: if the divine is involved in the creation of the world, artists are, as it were, co-creators.
The grand religious narratives continue to strongly influence contemporary culture. That is why a multifaith group in the Waikato has decided to explore the relationship between art, spirituality, and academic/political discourse. Through an art exhibition at Lady Goodfellow Chapel, and public talks, discussions and workshops, we aim at bringing together art makers and art lovers to explore the connections between art and spirituality.
