St. Andrew's Church

‘Call to Holy Ground’ film screening, sound walk, performance and installation in St Andrew's Church Leytonstone, is a collaborative offering made with a group of 40 elders from St Andrew’s Church and Shri Nathji Sanatan Hindu Temple.

On Wednesday 15th September attend a special performance and film screening with an introduction to the work by A+C Director, Laura Moffatt, artist curator Rosalind Parker and Fourthland's Isik Sayarer. Everyone is welcome to stay afterwards!

Call to Holy Ground presents a rich symbolism through the invitation to journey into the story of the ‘Ground Mother’, a character embedded with gestures and connections across nature, culture and faith, gestures that call to a holy ground and connect us more deeply with the earth. For the artists and participants, ‘Call to Holy Ground’ is a remembrance that we are all connected.

The work was made through a special collaboration with elders in Waltham Forest, many of whom have been living in the area for over 40 years, coming from a range of countries and representing a wonderful melting pot of local histories, faiths and culture. Originally commissioned by Art and Christianity (A+C). 

Event is open to people of all ages and will 2 and a half hours. The talk will be one hour followed by a screening and performance.
