AWAKENING THE SACRED THROUGH LITERATURE AND THE ARTS CONFERENCE 7-8 July 2017
Australian Catholic University, Strathfield
This is the 5th in a series of conferences presented by The Sacred in Literature and the Arts (SLA) community that brings together people from diverse disciplines and interests to discuss the interplay between the arts and the sacred.
The 2017 Conference asks how literature and the arts can help awaken an experience of the sacred. There will be a special focus on the meditative traditions and practices of East and West and the ways in which these are often nurtured and supported by literature and the arts.
Invited presenters include Laurence Freeman OSB, Shaykh Muhammad Mendes, Sasha Grishin, Rachael Koln, Maeve Heaney, David Tacey, Michael Griffith and artists Michael Galovic and Chelsea Adkins and the ACU Choir.
