To mend the world: art and theology downunder

One of my (distance) teaching colleagues, Lynne Baab, has asked me to mention the following:

To mend the world is intended as a dialogue between art and faith. The hope is to bring painters, poets, musicians, together with theologians, to explore a particular theme; can there be repair? Can there be a mending of the world, wounded as it is by war, by hatred, by exploitation and by neglect?

The theme comes from the Hebrew phrase ‘Tikkun Olam’ – to mend the world. It assumes that both art and theology can learn from one another. Speakers include William Dyrness, Professor of theology and culture at Fuller Theological Seminary, California. Dates are 29–30 July 2011, at Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership, Dunedin.
