Theologicon: A Christian Pop Culture Conference

Event - Saturday, 11 November 2017 - 9-4pm

When we say "pop-culture", what do you think about?

The Star Wars or Lord of the Rings franchise?

The seemingly never-ending stream of superhero, and then re-booted superhero movies?

TV shows like The Walking Dead and Lost?

Novels such as Harry Potter and Twilight, where the tangible and magical worlds collide?

Good - Evil - Love - Loss - Hope - Mercy - Justice

All of these cultural phenomenons have achieved immense popularity and success, but how do they connect with us? Are we looking for an experience beyond ourselves?  Something infinitely powerful? Transforming? Something outside of our boundaries?  Does the hope, justice and power of the Gospel speak into these desires?

Join us on Saturday, November 11 at Tabor as we explore how Christians can engage with the enduring themes and questions posed with pop-culture.

We also invite you to a join with your family and friends a private screening of Thor Ragnarok on Monday, November 13 from 6.30pm at Wallis Cinemas, Mitcham.

Marvel comics and movies are a lot of fun, and they also explore some of life’s biggest issues – hope, evil, sacrifice, responsibility and redemption.  Join us for a short panel discussion immediately following the movie to unpack some of its significant themes.

The panel will be hosted by Julian Grobler (storyteller, producer and actor at Three Kings Pictures), Matthew Gray (lecturer in culture and Christian thought at Tabor) and special guest, Daniel Zachariou (founder of Supanova Comic Con and Gaming).
