July 23-26, Australia Conference on Grounding the Sacred

July 23, 2015 3:00 pmtoJuly 26, 2015 4:05 pm

A conference on “Grounding the Sacred through Literature and the Arts” will be held from 23-26 July 2015 at Australian Catholic University, 25A Barker Road, Strathfield NSW 2135, Australia. The conference is part of ACU’s 25th anniversary celebrations. For further details, visit http://www.acu.edu.au/660851.

The Grounding the Sacred conference asks how literature and the arts can make the sacred tangible: do they enable us to touch the sacred? Do they offer a way of structuring our experiences of the sacred? Do they provide a common ground for people of different faiths – or none – to explore the ineffable? And where does creativity sit in relation to religion and the search for meaning? Are a sense of the sacred and the means to express it essential for human flourishing?

Inquiries can be made of the conveners, <michael.griffithATacu.edu.au> or <elaine.lindsayATacu.edu.au>.
