Arts & Crafts Symposium

How We Live and How We Might Live:  Ruskin and Morris in Our Time

Saturday, September 23rd, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at The Swedenborgian Church

The lives and work of John Ruskin (1819-1900) and William Morris (1834-1896) span much of the nineteenth century and express the period’s intellectual, social, and spiritual ferment. These ideas, at the very core of the Arts & Crafts movement, are finely exemplified by the enduring teachings of Swedenborg and the unique architecture of the Swedenborgian Church.

In this day-long symposium, participants will examine Ruskin and Morris’s timeless ideals of a peaceful, communal society that values beauty, practices useful and stimulating work, and achieves equality of condition as a model for a way forward in modern times, especially in light of the ongoing erosion of civility, social justice and democracy. All are welcome!
