Imagination, Revelation and Transformation: That’s What Happens When Art Participates in Religious Education
Francisca Ireland-Verwoerd (Boston University)

Workshop. [Notes] When art is a participant – instead of a tool – in religious education, new ways of thinking and knowing can occur. The pedagogy of this approach is one of hospitality in several movements: “Come on in,” “Bon appetite,” “After dinner conversation,” and “Next time at your place.” Entertaining art as a valued guest, we will learn from art, from each other and about ourselves as we engage in the conversation together. By connecting meaning in art and meaning making through art to our own experiences (imagination), unique insights (revelation) can lead to change and growth (transformation).
