Australian Quakers in the Arts
Australian Quakers in the Arts is an entry point for learning more about the diverse range of creative Quakers scattered across Australia. It is hoped that it will provide not only information but inspiration for those whose journeys recognise the creative.
AQITA (Australian Quakers in the Arts) is not devoted solely to the visual arts. This portal includes Quakers who are involved in writing (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, playwriting, screen writing, etc.), film making, multimedia art practices, music, dance, and performance, as well as all forms of the visual arts.
Many of these artists are often low-key about their Quaker connections, living out their lives in harmony with the Quaker practice of simplicity, and operating without a lot of fanfare. However, most are quite passionate about their art, whatever form it takes, and are willing to share insights into their practices and inspirations.
This website is also a WIP (Work in Progress).
I look forward to hearing from other Friends about their creative pursuits so that their journeys might be added to this website. Please contact Jacque to contribute to this ongoing project.
