An Evening Conversation
with Makoto Fujimura
You are invited to join the Trinity Forum, EDGE Mentoring, and Herron and Riverside High Schools for an Evening Conversation with artist and author Makoto Fujimura on "Culture Care."
During our inaugural Evening Conversation in Indianapolis, Fujimura will argue for the importance of creating and conserving beauty as an antidote to much of our cultural brokenness. He asserts the need for cultural generativity in our public life, and that beauty is vital to the "soul care" of each individual and to the renewal of cities and communities. Culture care provides the power of artistry and generosity to inspire, edify, and heal. Finally, Mako advocates the creation of new "cultural estuaries" to nurture and cultivate that which is beautiful, imaginative, and hospitable.
A renowned visual artist whose work is exhibited in museums around the world, Fujimura is also the founder of the International Arts Movement (IAM), which aims to inspire and engage artists to contribute to a healthy culture, and he is the Director of Fuller Theological Seminary's Brehm Center. He has served as a presidential appointee to the National Council on the Arts and was named the 2014 recipient of the "Religion and the Arts" award by the American Academy of Religion, an honor bestowed to an artist or scholar who has made a significant contribution to the understanding of the arts and religion.
