Mixing Bowl

IMG_6303

Mixing Bowl is a mixture of people from different backgrounds committed to exploring what faith, art and shared life looks like outside of the traditional church context. We meet twice monthly at Holy Biscuit and always enjoy a meal together as part of our gathering. We discuss, experience and reflect on an artwork* that has caught our attention, and pray together.

We usually meet on second and fourth Tuesday evenings each month, 6.30-8.30pm. Autumn 2017 dates will be a little different as we will be co-ordinating our gatherings around other events in the gallery - the confirmed dates for Mixing Bowl are 26th September, 24th October, 14th November and 28th November.

During these dates we will be a part of the Traces season at Holy Biscuit to explore death and our responses to it. 

 

*How it works - we take it in turns to choose the artwork to look at, and the 'artwork' could be anything - something seen online, in an exhibition, made by one of us, an advert, a piece of writing, and have a conversation about it.

Mixing Bowl has its own section within the Holy Biscuit blog - see our blog posts below to get a flavour for some of our previous gatherings.
