2024 Festival of Learning – Call for presenters

Australian Lutheran College (ALC) is calling for submissions from potential presenters for its 2024 Festival of Learning, which is to be held from Tuesday 20 February to Thursday 22 February.

The theme for next years event, ‘Challenging boundaries – life at the edges’, is inspired by Mark’s gospel where we find various accounts of Jesus crossing physical, religious, and cultural boundaries to engage with people. In our world today the good news is that God’s kingdom comes to people beyond all human boundaries. Following Jesus leads us to the edges of what we know as familiar. The 2024 Festival of Learning is a forum to explore life at the edges.

Potential presenters should define the theme broadly as an eclectic range of presentations designed to appeal to participants with diverse interests and perspectives. Suitable presentations will be focussed on theological, biblical, missiological, practical, cultural, Christological or ethical aspects of the theme, current research, or any other conversations and topics connected to the theme. The festival provides an opportunity for people to come together and learn from each other while reflecting on faith, ministry and theology.

Sessions run for 50 minutes and generally take the format of a presentation followed by a time for questions. Presentations will take place online so those presenting do not need to be located in Adelaide.

The call for presentations closes on Friday 8 September, 2023. Please email your expression of interest to including a title and synopsis of the proposed presentation.

 The program for the festival will be finalised in November.
