We are calling artists working in any medium to join us in creating an arts environment where we can share our work and the spiritual and theological ideas that inspire our work. We are looking for art that addresses this year's Soularize theme, Humane Spirituality.
In this often divided age we live in, where people throw barbs and slogans from their ideological positions, we believe that a different kind of spirituality is called for, one that celebrates and works towards a richer expression of our humanity.
The Covid pandemic has raised anxiety and revealed many of the unhealthy practices our societies have traded in which cause inequality, suffering and despair. Many are calling for a return to ‘normal, we are calling for something more, a new normal, where different values shape the world we live, things like kindness, generosity and compassion. Art can both reveal and speak to the human condition and invite us to reflect on what it means to be human.
If you’re one of those artists, we’d love to see your work and have you join our project.
