CANCELLED

Due to strike action by UCU, this event will not be taking place next week. We are sorry for any inconvenience (and disappointment!) but will endeavour to reschedule the event.A statement from UCU about why university workers are taking strike action can be found here

 


 

The relationship between religion and art is ancient and complex, varying across religious traditions and cultures. In this event, we will consider how these traditions of religious art differ and what role art plays in religion today. How should we display religious art? Might art be a way of opening interfaith dialogue? And has art itself become a kind of religion?
