How the Arts Can Enrich Conversations on Creation Care

When: June 10, 2022, 9:00 am - Friday

Where: Ezell 147

Session 6

Session Abstract

While public discourse about stewardship of the Earth often accentuates political disagreement, Christians are challenged to engage in productive conversations about our relationship with the Creator’s gifts. This session, through performance, verbal presentation and interaction with the audience will explore ways to use music, poetry, drama, and visual arts to seek common ground in addressing creation care. Structured as a “roundtable” the session intends to explore means of using integrated arts/performance to find common ground and identify trajectories for future creative and persuasive expressions of creation care.
