What would life look like without music and the arts?  For most of us life would be pretty boring without our favourite music, movies or a night out at the theatre.

What about music within the church; how much importance should we place on the arts in a Christian setting?

Dr Maeve Louise Heaney is an academic at the the Australian Catholic University where she is the Director of the Xavier Centre for Theological Formation in the Faculty of Theology and Philosophy.  As well as working as a senior lecturer, Meave’s field of research is music in Christian faith.

She is also an accomplished singer songwriter, having performed around the world and has released a number of albums.
