QUAKER ARTS AT SWARTHMOORNews 0 Comments
A series of varied events to accompany the Seeking Routes art exhibition at Swarthmoor Hall has now been published. It includes poetry, songs, lectures and workshops – all open to the public.
On the opening afternoon, Saturday 20th July, workshops on a theme of Fragile Abundance are being offered by members of Quaker Arts Network. They include dance, outdoor sketching/collage, creative writing and textiles. They are open to all (under 18s need to be accompanied by an adult), and will be followed by a celebratory performance. Details at are on our Documents page .
In the morning, QAN will hold a short Annual General Meeting , followed by a wide-ranging discussion of using the arts for Quaker outreach . We hope this will include matters such as curating or commissioning artworks/performances/publications/film, what is “Quaker” about our art, “coming out” as a Quaker in the arts world etc. All welcome (not just “creative types”); bring your experience and questions.
Accommodation at the Hall (limited), camping at the Meeting House and joining just for the day are all options. Booking information is here. Advance booking essential.
