Finally after three days immersion in the festival at Greenbelt i lift my heavd and remember to blog and share some of my experiences with you. Greenbelt is a huge Christian arts festival and I’ve spent many hours taking in talks on Emergent Christianity from the likes of Phyllis Tickle (vibrant 78 year old American church historian) to Pete Rollins, a philosopher, theologian Gen Xer with a blistering intellect. Both share a remarkable ability to articulate what is emerging. But you know after all that intellectual stimulation I was ready for something concrete and Wild!
The Hub was a multiple age arts space where people could book in and make headgear from corrugated cardboard, do linoprinting and other arts activities. The theme this year was Where the Wild Things Are. I made a head dress and wore it to the wild rumpus,
I was impressed with how the artists in the space presented and taught the techniques, and had clearly thought through how to break up the activities to be achievable in the time with a range of ages. For example, the linoprinting was set up so that you only needed to cut into a small piece of lino, creating a head, body or legs, then choose from a big selection of other cuts to build up your own Wild Thing, inking and printing three sections. Enjoy the photos and video!
