This workshop combines practical artwork, image, music, word and silence: no artistic experience is needed. All are welcome … wherever you are on your spiritual and artistic journeys.

It is not about learning to draw or paint, but about how to use art as tool to listen and pray in a non-verbal way. Also, being artistic is not a restriction for these workshops!

Sharing reflections on the theme and the work of the day is encouraged, but no one will be forced to speak, if they that feels uncomfortable or inappropriate.

The workshop will take its starting point from the reading, Isaiah 43:1-5 – ‘I have called you by name’ – a passage that speaks of identity, vocation and journeying.
