Faith is a contemporary fine art exhibition that explores what people believe and lets them explain this in their own words.
We have had lots of interest from venues including Cambrigde , Bristol , London and Coventry wishing to put on the exhibition and we want to take it around the country to galleries , colleges/universities and places of worship to show the diverse nature of belief and the commonalities that we all posess. In todays political climate an exhibition that celebrates our common ground is especially important
If we can find the smallest thing in common with someone then the conversation can begin
It features 37 expressive portraits of people of faith and no faith , Christians , Muslims, Hindus , Sikhs, Buddhists, Pagans, Rastas, Atheists and even a Zoroastrian who explain in words and in interviews their particular faith and how this impacts on their lives.
4 documentaries made in collaboration with The University of Gloucestershire's Film department compliment the portraits and give an insight into the similarities that there are between these diverse faiths.
The exhibition tries to show what all these seemingly very different people believe and that actually we all have so much in common when we examine and question each other closely.
Since its opening at Gloucester Cathedral there has been much controversy surrounding the exhibition both with the opening event there that featured amongst many other things a muslim call to prayer , a Jewish Havdallah and a Pagan folk band and the placement of images and the beliefs of non Christians within the Cathedral itself
