The Aldgate Church of Christ at the Village Well is participating in God's mission through innovative community engagement. Creative Arts Minister, Verity Riessen, had been working all year with various community groups and a local art curator to hold an exhibition this weekend titled 'Hope'.
With news of the recent lockdown last week it appeared the exhibition was postponed indefinitely. We have received news it is back on and launching at 2pm this Saturday November 28th. State MP for Heysen, Josh Teague will be launching the exhibition which will be on display to the public for 5 days. Please come along to engage stories of hope through art.
Appropriately titled 'Hope', this exhibition was originally designed to offer a community response to the Cuddly Creek bushfire that devestated the Adelaide Hills region in December 2019. Plans for the exhibition were disrupted in March this year due to COVID-19. Now the exhibition has incorporated a response to the pandemic as well, including art from local schools, nursing homes, community groups and more.
Many genres of art will be available to interact with including visual, performance, living, recorded and more. Check the link for a radio interview Verity gave on Wednesday afternoon.
