The historical development of Western music, visual art,
iconography, poetry, drama, and architecture is deeply linked to the theology, culture and worship of the Christian Church, and some of greatest works of art of all time owe their inspiration to the Christian faith. All these arts continue to play a highly significant role in the life of the Church, and increasingly artists, theologians, philosophers, and churches are re-discovering the profound resonance there can be between faith and art. The Edinburgh Festival of the Sacred Arts in the Fringe was established in 2018 as an annual celebration of this relationship.
In light of the uncertainty resulting from the corona virus crisis, the 2020 Edinburgh Festival Fringe has been cancelled, and with it, the 2020 Sacred Arts Festival. While this is a great disappointment, we are pleased to announce that, with the willing agreement of our performers and participants, the programme planned for 2020 will now be offered at the Sacred Arts Festival 15th-21st August 2021.
Some details may change. Please check back over the next few months.
