21st Faith


We are a collaborative research project, investigating and questioning faith as a human feeling. 

This publication presents 32 creative projects created for an exhibition in October 2017 at The Workshop, Lambeth.

As a maker interested in the importance of both spirituality and connectivity, the concept

of 21st faith was an exciting one. The exhibition itself was a great chance to see what

conversations could arise in an open and inclusive space where people conceptualised

their views/ideologies in relation to faith in the 21st century. This multitude of viewpoints

coupled with the feeling of openness and inclusivity was, I feel, the backbone of the show

and these are valuable feelings to foster if we are to create more harmonious communities

in this century. The welcoming environment was a perfect opportunity for me to test

the participatory elements of my practice and to engage in discussion with both audience

and fellow artist. Collectivity felt key to the show and the collective nature of the project

is perhaps (hopefully) reflective of a broader more tolerant understanding of faith

and a bigger investment in faith driven living for the future.
