Religion
& Art
Forum

Following the Religion & Art Symposium hosted by the Art Department, Goldsmiths in 2020, artists, theorists and PhD researchers expressed a keen interest in continuing these exchanges.

The Religion & Art Forum responds to that expression, with invited speakers presenting their work in an informal discussion forum. We are interested in a range of perspectives on questions of religion and art, with a focus on personal and collective experience and practice, rather than sociological or anthropological observation. 

The Religion & Art Forum takes place on a monthly basis on Monday evenings from 6-8pm UK time, with four presentations of up to 20mins each followed by a brief Q&A. Sessions are informally moderated by Nina Danino (Goldsmiths College) and Mark Dean (Arts Chaplaincy Projects).
