Bath Abbey youth group wanted to do projects for Easter and Christmas that enabled
them to speak through the art to the congregation and visitors. For Easter they painted
them selves as “resurrected” Christians. Each one has a message to give. Each one
is new and at this moment re-born. For Christmas they made a contemporary nativity
to challenge some of our ideas and attitudes about a story we tend to make cosy comfortable
and schmaltzy. Both exhibitions had a strong response from the public and raised
some interesting ideas and issues.
