Description of Organization
The aim of the Artist and Buddhist Contemplatives Project is to
- explore the connections between art and contemplative Buddhist practice,
- provide diverse resources for artists with a strong Buddhist contemplative practice,
- create opportunities for these artists to gather and explore the topics together, and in this way build community among them, and
- To open an inquiry into the relationship between art and Buddhist Practice to anyone interested in the topic, providing a source of inspiration and learning for artists today, those to come and the public.
