It is an opportunity for contemporary emerging, established and self-taught artists to engage in conversations related to religion and spirituality.

Australia and “The Divine Image” Symposium
Thursday, 11th May - Saturday, 13th May 2017
Australia and “The Divine Image” Symposium is a public program presented in conjunction with the 64th Blake Prize Touring Exhibition (7 April - 26 May 2017) hosted by Kinross Arts Centre and Toorak Uniting Church. The symposium provides an opportunity to bring together audiences and experts in the field of the arts and spirituality. It promotes the freedom to reflect about themes and issues in multifaith and secular communities around Australia. Many of the Prize finalists reflect on cultural negotiations made on and around the human body. In what ways does this exhibition portray the concept of humans made in the Divine image? Join us for some dynamic dialogue on these topics.
The symposium presents an opportunity to engage with artist practitioners, academic presenters and hands-on artmaking experiences to connect art and spirituality in contemporary Australia. Generously sponsored by The Centre for Theology & Ministry.
