Pete Rollins to speak in Sydney

Peter Rollins, a widely sought after writer, lecturer, storyteller and public speaker, will make appearances in Sydney at the end of September.

Mr Rollins was the founder of ikon, a faith group that gained an international reputation for blending live music, visual imagery, soundscapes, theatre, ritual and reflection to create what they call “transformance art”.

He gained his higher education from Queens University, Belfast and has earned degrees (with distinction) in Scholastic Philosophy (BA Hons), Political Theory (MA) and Post-Structural thought (PhD).

He is currently a research associate with the Irish School of Ecumenics in Trinity College, Dublin and is the author of the much talked about How (Not) to Speak of God. His most recent work is entitled Insurrection. He was born in Belfast but currently resides in Greenwich, CT and is employed by The Olson Foundation.
