The Art of Ritual

Friday, 4th December 2015

One Church, Gloucester Place, Brighton, BN1 4AA

The boundaries between art and ritual are becoming more and more porous as artists engage in performance work with highly stylized
routines or actions and celebrants (religious and non-religious) explore the use of art to help people mark the important milestones in their lives. This day will bring together practitioners in all forms of ritual and art to share ideas, talk about trends, experience artistic rituals and enjoy performances.  The day will be hosted by Cole Moreton, journalist, broadcaster and author of ‘Is God Still an Englishman’ and curated by Martin Poole, founder of Beyond Church.
