A fitting post-Easter conversation occurred this week around the role and relationship of art and religion. Are the two actually mutually exclusive in a contemporary context? This is obviously a complex question and personal to each of us, but it did lead to a discussion of the role of faith in the creative process and the value of uncertainty. This raised the question du jour in WCR: How do we evaluate and communicate the value of the creative process in a culture that assesses worth and productivity in economic terms?
Although we are still no closer to finding an answer, we did manage to make some pretty amazing connections, find potential collaborators, and finish off the delicious Easter chocolate!
