A Symposium on the Future of Theology & the Arts


DITA10 was a three-day symposium celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the establishment of Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts (DITA) at Duke Divinity School. This first and only DITA conference featured conversations with leading scholars and artists, workshops for church leaders, inspiring corporate worship, an interactive concert featuring musicians from the top orchestras in the nation, and a colloquium for emerging scholars.

Keynote speakers included N. T. Wright, Kate Bowler, poet Christian Wiman, and DITA Director Jeremy Begbie, and plenary speakers included Malcolm Guite, Judith Wolfe, and Natalie Carnes on topics such as the theology of the Inklings and art as a necessary means for imaginative formation. The seminars featured poet Michail O’Siadhail, Professor Richard Hayes, and Christian visual artist Steve Prince on a variety of topics related to theology and the arts. All lectures, plenaries, and seminars are available for viewing below as well as a recording of the conference’s concert, “Making All Things New.”
