With her trademark wit and taste for telling detail, Dupré has presented talks and programs on art and architecture at universities, elementary schools, design conferences, and even on the Suez Canal aboard the Queen Mary 2. Scroll down for sample programs and client list.
Join New York Times bestselling author Judith Dupré for writing workshops inspired by the four seasons. Guided writing exercises encourage participants to open up new conversations with the sacred, and come to a deeper understanding of their own lives. No particular writing skills required, only a willingness to contemplate, pen in hand. Workshops are 4 hours long, including breaks for conversation and fellowship. Each workshop limited to 25 or fewer participants; two workshops can be presented in morning and afternoon sessions.
Thanks for everything! I really enjoyed the workshop as a chance to calmly reflect during Lent. I hope you will continue to hold these workshops for aspiring writers whenever the spirit moves you! —Writing the Journey workshop attendee, Yale University
Talks are 1-2 hours in length and include Q+A and/or small group discussion.
Mary in the Movies A program of film clips and commentary on the Virgin of the silver screen and her enduring hold on the creative and spiritual imagination. Milestone events in the Virgin Mary’s life and faith journey are told through the powerful medium of film. Clips include cinematic masterpieces from Godard, Pasolini, Scorcese, and Malick; early silent films; and new indie features. Theologically sound, visually captivating!
You made Mary real with your stories about your favorite images of art, photography and film. Suddenly she was no longer a statue or an image in a flat painting. She became a living and breathing woman that I could relate to. Thank you. —Mary in the Movies attendee
At Home in the World “Make for me a sanctuary, so that I may dwell among them” – Exodus reminds us that our God is a God that wants architecture, wants to dwell in and among us. Buildings shelter our bodies as well as our souls. The best enable human relationships, foster community and, ultimately, invite contact with the transcendent. Join us as we look at broad range of design and structures and discuss home, architecture, and God. An excellent conversation starter for parishes embarking on building campaigns or in need of congregational renewal.
We truly enjoyed having you back at Brown—and the privilege for all of us to hear your thoughts—useful to our youngest, and refreshingly truthful to the ears of those of us who have lived awhile. —Janet Cooper Nelson, University Chaplain, Brown University
