'Baptism- A Radical Act’

No automatic alt text available.

'Baptism- A Radical Act’: An art exhibition featuring artwork produced by those who live with homelessness, and by other artists associated with Bloomsbury. It invites reflection on the theme of radical dissent within the religious and political sphere.

23-27 January, 10am-4pm, Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, 235 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8EP

An installation of artwork and photography will be on display daily, with further information on the history of the Baptist tradition of radical religious dissent, and the politics of water in the contemporary world.

Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church has been working with the homeless and vulnerable of Central London for nearly 170 years, and has a philosophy of ‘inclusion’, where all are invited to participate in the community life of the church. Many of those who live with homelessness are artistic and creative, and the purpose of this exhibition is to display artwork by a diversity of artists.

This project is part of the ‘Still Reforming’ programme by the ‘Reformation’ churches of Central London, to mark 2017 as the 500th anniversary of the reformation. Find out more about these reformation events by downloading the brochure "Still Reforming".
