The start of this academic year saw the launch of an exciting new dimension in the work of ITIA. TheoArtistry explores how ITIA’s world-leading research may impact the making and practice of the arts.
In TheoArtistry’s inaugural project, six outstanding young composers have been chosen to work with Sir James MacMillan, Dr George Corbett, and researchers from the School of Divinity. Each composition focuses on a biblical passage on the theme of ‘Annunciations.’
TheoArtistry celebrates the practice, making, performance, curatorship, and reception of Christian art. From arts festivals to art works, TheoArtistry’s collaborative projects bring together the expertise and interests of artists, theologians, and commissioners of art.
The first TheoArtistry Festival, entitled ‘TheoArtistry: Music as Theology,’ will take place in March 2018 in St Andrews.
More information about the compositions, as well as current and future projects, can be found on the TheoArtistry website: http://theoartistry.org/
