Special to 1808Delaware

Methodist Theological School in Ohio will bring together visual and performing artists for a two-day event centered on the ways social justice is promoted through the arts. “The Art of Justice: A Multi-Genre Celebration of the Arts Within Social justice Movements,” will take place virtually over two days: noon to 4PM on April 30 and 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM on May 1. This special event is cosponsored by two MTSO initiatives, the Theological Commons and the Anti-Racism Task Force.

“The Art of Justice” will showcase music, poetry and visual arts through performances, workshops and scholar-led conversation. Presenters and performers include visual artist David Butler (pictured above), folk singer Bill Cohen, poet (and MTSO alum) Barbara Fant, and singer Paisha Thomas.

Registration is required. While there is no admission charge, an optional suggested donation of $25 is requested. Half of all proceeds will go to the Maroon Arts Group, a nonprofit providing a platform for conscious art centered on the preservation and promotion of cultures of African descent. Learn more and register here. Registrants will be provided with Zoom links for the event.

Methodist Theological School in Ohio provides theological education and leadership in pursuit of a just, sustainable and generative world. In addition to the Master of Divinity degree, the school offers master’s degrees in counseling, practical theology, social justice and theological studies, along with a Doctor of Ministry degree.

MTSO’s Anti-Racism Task Force seeks to be a practical, supportive body for students, staff and faculty that upholds the school’s commitment to being an anti-racist multicultural institution.

The Theological Commons at MTSO is a means through which the school shares intellectual resources with the church and the world through dialogue with the broader community. By offering events, learning resources and continuing conversation, the Theological Commons promotes the sharing of knowledge and experience between students, faculty, clergy and the public for the benefit of all participants and those they serve.
