Oct 9-10 -- Theosophy was, without question, a major source of inspiration and influence for artists in the modern age.

This conference also seeks to explore the wider contexts of Theosophy’s influence in the arts. How can we locate Theosophical arts within broader cultural and social histories of the period c.1875-1960?
