2016 Festival

ATTENTION: Please download the PROGRAM here.

The Okanagan School of the Arts, The Shatford Centre is currently inviting proposals for inSpirit, a symposium exploring spirituality in the arts, held in Penticton, BC for three days from October 21st to October 23rd, 2016.

inSpirit (now in its second year) seeks to build positive awareness around spirituality in the arts. We look forward to bringing together different spiritual practices and sourcing the seeds of inspiration from which art develops. The weekend will include 8-10 speakers (comprised of artists, musicians, writers, and spiritual practitioners) who will give lectures, presentations, performances, conduct workshops, and participate in panel discussions.

inSpirit is intended for anyone who seeks to explore spirituality in the arts. Using art as a vehicle, this symposium will explore the symbols, customs, and practices of diverse spiritual explorations. The opportunity to share perspectives will hopefully encourage participants to develop new pathways for collaboration, partnership, and new areas for individual growth.
