We will be exploring themes related to Time, including cyclical time. This theme can encompass a wide range of interpretations and related concepts.

We welcome artists and theologians to join us in forming this exhibition by submitting pieces of their own in any medium or to contribute to conversations helping to form these pieces.

If submitting art—visual, literary, theatrical, musical, or otherwise— enter a brief proposal into the Google Form, here,by Friday 31st January.

Further inquiries can be sent to Letizia Morley at letizia.morley@gmail.com.

The proposal should include the following:

 Art medium

 Proposed concept

 Space required (i.e. how it will be displayed or performed)

 Number of pieces of art / performances

The proposal does not have to be a detailed description of what you will create but should indicate a commitment to the exhibition, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

You may propose as many pieces as you like but please be mindful of what you are committing to.

Rilke and Eliot Symposium

In March 2019, Professor Judith Wolfe (ITIA) and Professor Thomas Pfau (Duke) convened a four-day colloquium on R.M. Rilke’s Duino Elegies and T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets. Comprised of a small gathering of theologians, philosophers and literary scholars, the colloquium included ITIA’s Director, Dr. Gavin Hopps, Christoph Schwöbel (St. Andrews, Divinity), Rowan Williams (Cambridge), Malcolm Guite (Cambridge),Kevin Hart (Virginia), and David Wellbery (Chicago).

‘After the Call’ exhibition

ITIA artists invite you to examine with them what happens after the call.

The Transept – a group of practicing artists within the Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts (ITIA) – invites you to join us for an upcoming performance and exhibition.

‘After the Call’ offers space and time for celebration and reflection around the notion of being called unexpectedly to something unknown, or perhaps to something all-too-familiar that we suddenly realise.


6-15 April 2018

Venue open from 12:00 to 17:00 each day.

Performance evening on 11th April at 19:00 – engaging and interdisciplinary performance with music, poetry and monologues.

Location: Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Queens Terrace, St Andrews KY16 9QF
