Description

ART=PRAXIS Symposium


noun | prax·is \ˈprak-səs\

: action, practice:
a: exercise or practice of an art, science, or skill
b: customary practice or conduct

: practical application of a theory

This one-day symposium is being organised as part of Sasha Chaitow's solo art exhibition, Stained by the Light, taking place in Glastonbury from 14-23 October .The exhibition concept focuses on art as a living entity that can invite the viewer into a silent dialogue. The process of mindful, experiential engagement with the art is designed to evoke memories, raise questions, arouse curiosity, and invite the viewer to solve the enigma posed by the symbolic composition, resulting in a perceptual shift or realisation.

Organised and moderated by Sasha Chaitow, the symposium features eight invited talks by artists and scholars exploring this question from different perspectives, from its use in ancient sacred practices, its utility as a method for inner work and healing, to its potential for social change on small or larger scales.

Speakers: Dr Sasha Chaitow, Dr Simon Magus, Madeleine Le Despencer, Derek Bain, Alkistis Dimech, Christina Oakely Harrington, Dr Chris Giudice, Cavan McLaughlin.
