VicTas Art and Spirituality Network members meet monthly, taking turns to present their artwork, processes and techniques and leading each other in reflection on the connections between art and spirituality. Guest speakers are regular highlights, bringing insights and challenges to the group. We share lunch together and a time of meditation or devotion.
Our intention is to meet in various locations when possible, including gallery visits. Most often we meet at the Centre for Theology and Ministry in Parkville.
