Welcome to the site!
I am just coming back to the website after a few years away from it; this is a place to gather my academic and creative projects. You can also follow me on Twitter @brettdpotter for more of the same.
I currently teach religion and theology at Queen’s University, Sheridan College, and Tyndale Seminary (all in Southern Ontario). I am especially interested in the intersection of theology, art, and culture. I recently completed a PhD in theological aesthetics at the University of St. Michael’s College.
Alongside my writing in theology and the arts, I make music and video art. I have a BFA in Film and Video from York University with a concentration in experimental/alternative cinema. Video works have screened at Scotiabank Nuit Blanche (Toronto), the Flickerings Festival (Bushnell, Illinois) and the Blackwell Gallery (Mississauga). In terms of music, I just finished up working as a music director at a church and am now focusing on some songwriting.
Somewhere in there I also serve as an assistant theology editor for The Other Journal.
When not immersed in the world of academia I can be found at home in Toronto spending time with my wife and kids and/or watching Star Trek on Netflix.
If you have art, writing, or events you would like to have featured on my blog or Twitter feed, I’d love to hear from you either using the comment box below (or you can tweet me at @brettdpotter). Click here to read my alumni profile from Regent College. Thanks for stopping by!
