This annual extravaganza of public programs exploring the links between the arts, humanities and religion returns in its 13th incarnation, this time dedicated to the theme of “Exploring Imagination.” Various community organizations and institutions will present performances, programs, speakers, exhibits and more from Nov. 1-16, with a major keynote event, the “Public Conversation,” taking place from 2-4 p.m. at Butler University’s Clowes Hall this Saturday.
This year, the three principal conversants will be filmmaker Julie Dash; religious leader, songwriter and author Brian D. McLaren; and essayist and author Richard Rodriguez. Author Scott Russell Sanders serves as moderator. Admission is free but tickets are required. Get up to four tickets per person at the Clowes box office, 4602 Sunset Ave. For information only call 317-940-6444.
