TTK: Lanterns Raised 

TTKs are Sky Blue Window's 'Things to Know,' events, ideas and cultural creations that we think are worthy of your time and attention.

Spirit & Place Festival isn't just another arts and humanities festival. Each year, to spark conversation and inspire a range of local organizations to host collaborative programs, the festival focuses on one theme. And, to make things interesting, the festival adds faith and spirituality to the mix. For 2014, the theme is "Journey," and leading up to the November multiday main event, the organizers are hosting a series of intriguing opportunities to explore the topic.

Thursday night at Lanterns Raised: Journeys Through Art, Joyful Noise artist (and recent Sufjan Stevens and Lorde collaborator) Son Lux will perform and, alongside spoken word artist and hip-hop emcee Tony Styxx and Herron School of Art & Design's Kathryn Armstrong, engage in a conversation that explores how art changes and enhances life. Late last week, Lily and Madeleine joined the bill.

Conversations are at the core of Spirit & Place's approach, but the incorporation of a critically acclaimed musician, hip hop and conceptual art is exciting ground. The festival launched in 1996 with a single and singular public conversation featuring Kurt Vonnegut, Dan Wakefield and John Updike talking about the Circle City. Thursday night's dynamic mix of visual and musical artists will certainly be different than that literary crew -- and a great deal younger too -- but the evening promises to highlight the dynamic connections between the arts. Tickets for the event at Christian Theological Seminary are available online.
