Augsburg’s Interfaith Scholars, a group of students who are interested in exploring the religious diversity of the Augsburg student body, the wider Twin Cities community, and the United States through interreligious dialogue and action, are organizing a campus wide art project focused on the question: “What brings you light?” This is an ambiguous prompt, as our goal is to engage with folks from many different religious, spiritual, and secular backgrounds and to showcase what is the “light” in our lives despite our different beliefs.
We ask the members of the Augsburg community to reflect on what brings them light, and to photograph if they are able. Perhaps it is a beloved pet, a significant other, a spice rack because you love cooking, a pocket bible, a special place you spend time in, etc. If it is not something you’re able to photograph, a selfie would be a great submission! Please send appropriate content, as these photos will be displayed at the “Interfaith Art Project Showcase” on April 4th in the Gundale Chapel, located in Hagfors from 5pm-8pm.
We are also asking for an audio clip with your photo submission. You can talk about what your light is or answer one of the following questions the Interfaith Scholars has compiled. Please send your photo submission to email@example.com. You may submit a text description or an audio recording between 30 seconds and 90 seconds long answering any of these questions:
– What brings you light?
– What brings you meaning?
– What brings you joy?
Please feel free to interpret the question in whatever way resonates with you. Be creative, be spontaneous, and be intentional. Please let us know if you have any questions on this art project or are unsure on how to complete the submission.
We look forward to seeing (and hearing!) from you.
