n May 2011, Seattle-based Image Journal brought a bit of a roadshow to Winnipeg’s West End Cultural Centre, to celebrate the connections between faith and the arts.  Hosted by the journal’s founder and editor-in-chief, Gregory Wolfe, the evening featured a set by the renowned neo-folk artists Over the Rhine, and a panel discussion between artists in a variety of creative fields, sharing their thoughts on art, faith, and integrity in the public square. Hosted by Gregory Wolfe, the panel included Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist of Over the Rhine, Jamie Howison of saint benedict’s table, Karen Sunabacka of Providence College, and the painter Christian Worthington.

We are pleased to offer this podcast of the evening’s panel discussion, and to be able to incorporate a few samples of the evening’s music. If you like what you hear of the music, please consider yourself a patron of the arts and order yourself a copy of the band’s latest album, The Long Surrender, which the Los Angeles Times called “exquisitely beautiful.”

A word of thanks to all who helped to make this event happen, and especially to the panel participants. An additional word of thanks to Karen and Lindford, for sharing of both their music and their ideas.

And thanks to Tim Plett, for the wonderful photographs…
