Being a Christian and an artist, whatever creative discipline you may be part of, can be a puzzling thing. As we push forwards in our faith and our art practice, so many questions arise and so often it seems like there’s nobody around to bounce them off.Sputnik (www.sptnk.co.uk) are putting on an afternoon for artists in London who’d like to think through how their faith and art intersect. Whether you’re a painter or a rapper, a poet or a photographer, a film maker, a dancer, an actor, a graphic designer or anything in between, this is for you!  Our intention is to open up discussions, connect like minds, give opportunities to share work and also potentially to see if we can start up some more regular artist meet ups for Christians in London in the future.Jonny Mellor, from Sputnik, will be hosting the day, and we’d love it if people could come ready to talk about their work, and also share some work with us. This may involve playing or showing work that is online, or bringing physical work to show or even performing live.Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Therefore, please sign up here so that we know numbers.There is no cost for the event, but there will be an opportunity for people to give a voluntary contribution for the food. Let us know when you sign up if you have a food allergy.

The Irish Environmental History Network invites you to its 47th public meeting, featuring a lecture from very special guest Dr Christine Corton of the University of Cambridge. This FREE event takes place on Monday the 1st of April from 6-8PM in the TRiSS Seminar Room, 6th floor of the Arts Building. All are welcome to attend. 'London Fog: The Biography' Abstract: In popular imagination, London is a city of fog (the ‘big smoke’) and these fogs became one of the great urban spectacles of the industrial age as well as a globally notorious instance of air pollution. Frequently the fogs were so thick that people could not see their own feet. The story of the classic London fogs, thick yellow “pea-soupers,” from the industrial age of the nineteenth century to the clean air legislation of 1956 that ended them attracted the imagination of writers as varied as Charles Dickens, Henry James, Oscar Wilde, Robert L. Stevenson and others. Artists including Whistler, Monet and Yoshio Markino were fascinated by their visual effects. In this talk Christine L Corton describes these epic London fogs, their dangers and beauty, and their lasting impact on our culture and imagination. Bio: Dr Christine L Corton worked for many years in publishing houses including Hamish Hamilton and Penguin. She has been a Senior Member of Wolfson College since 2010. Her book London Fog: The Biography, published in 2015 by Harvard University Press, was paperbacked in 2018 and was also published in Chinese. Her new book is a Cultural History of Divorce.

Sound and Music's Teacher Network Event is for London secondary music teachers wanting to explore and strengthen their approach to teaching composing. These informal events draw on the research generated by Listen Imagine Compose and offer teachers a chance to explore its findings, share personal experiences and to discover practical solutions to teaching composing within secondary schools. Led by composer Sigrún Sævarsdóttir-Griffiths, we will be exploring how composing can be developed through working as a whole-class ensemble, and how individual pupils can develop musical ideas in a group composition context.   Details The event is free but places must be booked in advance. Refreshments will be provided. Listen Imagine Compose is a partnership project between Sound and Music, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and Birmingham City University investigating how composition is taught  and learned through secondary schools and draws on the expertise of teachers and their pupils, composers, music education academics and arts organisations.
