    Art as a Bridge to Each Other
     
    Exploring God’s biblical call
    “To love your neighbor as yourself”
    through art, theology & the voice of the artist
     
    The Who Is My Neighbor? Conference is a dialogue about art & creativity within church & community. Our journey is guided by Catholic Latino theologian Cecilia González-Andrieu, Calvinist philosopher & theologian Nicholas Wolterstorff and the creative voice of 11 artists. Together we'll explore how art can become a bridge "to our neighbor," and a creative catalyst for social change and spiritual renewal within our neighborhoods, churches, schools and communities.
