I was at a big art conference in Augsburg from thursday to saturday. The title of the conference was “SCHÖN”, which means “beautiful” in German. Put on by the house of prayer in Augsburg, the focus was art and it’s relevance in faith and in society. Exciting topics!
Now, I’m back in Ewersbach, getting ready for exams. But I can say that the SCHÖN has inspired me a lot, and that several of the inputs will have long-term effect. We saw that art can transform communities and give people a voice. We learned to stop putting the “perfect idea” off and to “create something today, even if it sucks”. And we learned that creativity and the belief in a god who values each human as his creation are inseperable. I am tired from the long drive, but I am so glad that I went!
