A Day of Reflection for the Creative Artist

Santa Clara University, through the Bannan Center for Jesuit Education, offers a free lecture series open to the public. The next one is this Saturday.

The Book of Job in a Suffering World:
A Day of Reflection
on the Vocation of the Creative Artist

How can artists work in solidarity with the poor beyond slogans? Inspired by the Jesuit ideal of igniting imaginations to change our suffering world, this day of reflection will bring together artists and activists to explore how to engage social justice issues in light of the perplexing questions raised by the Book of Job.
