Religion & Art is a CHASE funded research initiative by Nina Danino (Art Department, Goldsmiths); a series of public cultural and critical events that set out to create interdisciplinary encounters between religion and art from a generative position and to create a field of research and further enquiry in art practice.


In 2020 a symposium hosting presentations by artists, theorists and researchers was held at Goldmiths.


In 2021 the project expanded to a series of practice-based discussions in an online forum, co-chaired with Mark Dean (Arts Chaplaincy Projects)


For 2022 Nina Danino and Mark Dean have planned a series of interdisciplinary talks by keynote speakers José Carlos Diaz, Adrian Rifkin, Tina Beattie, and Jarel Robinson-Brownfollowed by the opportunity for extended discussion.
