Reflections on the role of music and the arts in building a global community
The Fashionertakes the reader on a journey through the various ways in which the arts can touch people’s lives. Drawing on inspirational quotations from the Bahá’í Writings, as well as interviews with a number of artists, this book explores the transformative power of the arts.
Lepard discusses architecture, photography, music, dance, theater, and painting, and looks at the way in which Bahá’í artists have applied principles of the Faith to their art. The community building process happening within the global Bahá’í community today, and the ways in which the arts can be used to inspire and enhance these activities, are also discussed.
It is hoped that this book will serve as encouragement for anyone wishing to more deeply understand and connect to the creative arts and find ways to explore their use in Bahá’í activities and community life.
