The Spiritual Arts Foundation is a unique organisation that seeks to promote and support spiritually inspired creative endeavours in the United Kingdom. Conceived of by music composer and filmmaker Clifford White, the foundation aims to highlight the wealth of spiritual talent in the UK and nurture its growth as a recognised artistic movement. ZenZone was honoured to be asked to contribute to the foundation – you can find us here.
But what does “spiritual” mean in the context of the arts? Whether it is through traditional praying, or even just meditation, spirituality is very subjective. It’s not necessarily about being religious (although it can be), but more about exploring deeper questions and themes, and expressing a sense of connection to something larger than oneself. It’s about seeking meaning and purpose in life, and using the arts as a way to convey those feelings and ideas.
So…what is it?
The foundation represents and promotes all positive and life-affirming spiritual creative arts, including art, music, theatre, film, and literature. In addition to supporting individual creators and their works, the foundation also hosts a range of workshops and courses designed to inspire and help people develop their own spiritual creative abilities.
The foundation focuses on a wide range of artistic mediums, including film, music, and literature. It seeks out spiritual filmmakers who create thought-provoking short films and features, and spiritual artists who paint ethereal and otherworldly scenes. It also looks for spiritual musicians and composers who create celestial music, and for books and literary works that seek to inspire and enlighten.
If you’re an artist, musician, or creator of any kind and you feel a deep spiritual connection to your work, or if you’re just someone who loves exploring spiritual themes through the arts, the Spiritual Arts Foundation is here for you. They welcome all who are interested in delving into the deeper questions of life and finding meaning and purpose through creativity. So whether you’re a seasoned artist or just starting out on your creative journey, we encourage you to join them in exploring the spiritual side of the arts.
