Regional Retreat – November 2021

Wealth and Poverty in Art and Faith

led by Debbie Lewer at The Briery, Ilkley

16-18 November 2021

Art is rich with symbolic traditions for expressing visually power and authority. It can also reveal profound value in the most impoverished material and the most desolating experiences. On this retreat we will explore a wide range of visual art, old and new, to open up some of the theological implications of what we value and where we find wealth. This is an opportunity to engage with creative ways of seeing and to reflect on our theological 'images' as people of faith today.

Debbie is Senior Lecturer in History of Art at the University of Glasgow. She is a regular speaker and teacher in churches, theological colleges and at festivals and retreats on the rich relationship between art and faith. She is passionate about making art history accessible to all. You can learn a little more about what makes Debbie tick from her biography on the University of Glasgow website.
