About Art & Soul Café
Art & Soul Café is a nonprofit arts organization that is dedicated to creating events and programs that stimulate a deeper sense of community through the power of the arts and interspiritual dialogue. It is part of their mission to explore the intersection of religion with the arts and sciences, the media, politics, and the environment. Art & Soul Café was operational at Christ Church Cathedral for four years.
After a hiatus, Artistic Directors Lydia Ruffin and Bonnie Taylor are developing a mobile format and staged their first event in April at Grand Center Arts Academy. In June, Art & Soul Café traveled to North Carolina as a sponsor and exhibitor to the Wild Goose Festival, a community where spirituality, art, and justice intersect.
