Utopia: An Art Exhibition “Can the world be better?” July 21-27th
“Utopia. Can the world be better?
As Christians we have a concept of utopia – of something better, more perfect, more wonderful; where everything that is currently wrong with the world will cease. The world at this time too is yearning for utopia. In the realisation of exacerbated climate change, furthered economic inequality and angered political dialogues, artists around the world are engaging with the idea of utopia. This utopia is something we, as humans, know we can’t reach (proved by our constant failure to do so), but which is worth striving for anyway – because we still hope and need to move towards making things better.
How can your Christian perspective on this concept of utopia (with ideas about God’s perfect goodness, God’s Kingdom, Heaven, New Earth…) enable you to see your reality in a different way? To critique what doesn’t fit and promote the things that do? And to live as if you’re striving to make it happen?”

- Sunday 21st Exhibition opening 16:00 – 17:00 pm
