Faith, Art and Activism

For the fifth year, the Church of St Stephen-in-the-Fields and the Trinity College Chaplaincy present a series of performances, installations and discussions exploring the interactions and contradictions between religious faith, artistic practice, and action for social justice.

While these three human concerns can reinforce and deepen each other, they can also exist in tension; and it often seems that at least one of the three must be compromised. We will look at both the possibilities and the problems, working with a variety of artists and thinkers, and presenting new, challenging and exciting work.

More details on programming soon, but we are planning to include an early music concert; a relaunch of the graphic novel “War in the Neighbourhood”; a panel talking about how Muslims and Christians “hear the word” in our faith practices; and a day retreat on Toronto Island, as well as a special additional service of Evensong on September 17, featuring the music of Hildegard of Bingen.

All events are free, though donations are always welcome.
