Event description
Bournemouth: Faith & Arts Day

About this Event

Being a Christian and an artist, whatever creative discipline you may be part of, can be a puzzling thing. As we push forwards in our faith and our art practice, we often end up raising questions and pushing boundaries, and it too often seems like there’s nobody around who is inhabiting the same space.

Sputnik and Commission are putting on an afternoon for artists in Bournemouth who’d like to think through how their faith and art intersect. Whether you’re a painter or a rapper, a poet or a photographer, a film maker, a dancer, an actor, a graphic designer or anything in between, this is for you!

Our intention is to open up discussions, connect like minds, give opportunities to share work and also potentially to see if we can start up some more regular artist meet ups for Christians in Bournemouth in the future.

Jem Bunce, from Anchor of Hope Church, Falmouth will be hosting the day. There will be live performances; opportunities to connect with other artists; and presentations from Sputnik founder, Jonny Mellor and hyperrealist painter Alastair Gordon.

We’d love it if people could come ready to talk about their work, and also share some work with us. This may involve playing or showing work that is online, or bringing physical work to show or even performing live.

More about our speakers:

Alastair is an acclaimed hyperrealist painter whose work has appeared in a multitude of exhibitions, collections and residencies, worldwide. He's also a writer, a teacher, and something of an ambassador for faith and art everywhere he goes.

Jonny is a rapper, church leader and the founder of Sputnik. Sputnik is a network of Christian artists that connects, profiles and funds artists who follow Jesus, while trying to build bridges between artists and local churches.

The Nitty Gritty

Tea, coffee and refreshments will be provided throughout the day and we'll have a break for lunch (lunch not provided).

For access to the event, head to the Community Wing, situated around to the left from the main entrance.
