Mandorla Art Award 2020 theme announced
At the opening of the National Liturgy Conference at Notre Dame University, Perth’s Anglican Archbishop Kay Goldsworthy proclaimed the 2020 theme:
'He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?'
Taken from the prophetic Book of Micah chapter 6, verse 8 in the Old Testament, this is the theme for the latest iteration of the Mandorla Art Award. This theme was chosen by the committee following a thorough exploration of what issues are most pressing in the world today.
Artists are invited to interpret this verse from scripture and express it in their chosen visual artform. Entries will open in March for the exhibition to be held in 2020.

A series of artist forums will be held where artists are invited to come hear from theologians and guest speakers about the theme. The first one is scheduled for Thursday 7 February, 7.30-9p.m. at Richmond Uniting Church Gallery,
304-314 Church Street, Richmond. www.richmond.unitingchurch.org.au
Mandorla chairperson and professor of Theology Dr Angela McCarthy will be there to ignite artists imaginations.
