Stranmillis Summer School: ‘Christianity and Culture’


All of us in the worlds of education, literature and the arts are culture-makers. What is the relevance, if any, of Christian faith and values to what we do? Come and explore at the inaugural Stranmillis Summer School, ‘Christianity and Culture’, Tuesday 27th to Thursday 29th June, 2017.

The Stranmillis University College community is honoured to welcome an excellent line-up of key contributors including: educationalists Professor David Smith (Calvin College, USA) and Professor John Shortt (Liverpool Hope University, UK); literary historian Professor Crawford Gribben (Queen’s University Belfast); artist and sculptor Ross Wilson, and Jonathan Rea, Creative Director, New Irish Arts. A blend of keynote lectures, seminars and discussion panels across three days will address literature (Tuesday 27th June Reading and Writing), education (Wednesday 28th June, Learning and Teaching) and the Arts (Thursday 29th June, Creating and Worshipping).

To mark this first Stranmillis Summer School we are delighted to be hosting a Gala Concert, ‘An Evening with Members of New Irish Choir and Orchestra and Youth Choir’, on the evening of Thursday 29th June at 8.00pm in the College Drama Theatre.
