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.
