“Faith, Art and Symbolism” with Jonathan Pageau

February 15 from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

$15.00

Christianity offers a wealth of images, stories and symbolic structures. This imagery is not only a kind of cultural treasure, but is also a matrix of engagement with reality.  We will plunge into the basic narrative of Scripture and how this translates into everything from Christian art, architecture, storytelling and music, all acting together as a matrix of human participation.

Part 1: How Christian Narrative is a world pattern

Part 2:  What then should we create today?

We will look at the relevance of Christian narrative in the contemporary world, at how it permeates even secular arts and culture.  We will also look at how the Christian artist can engage their creations within the basic pattern of Christ without giving into superficial affect or propagandist discourse.

This event is presented by Boston Fellows, in collaboration with Orthodoxy on Tap, a ministry of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston.

Registration is $15 and includes lunch.
