We have been so busy being creative that we’re only just finding the time to share our exciting news on our latest art project ‘Reaching Out’. We’re collaborating with St. George’s Church, Gravesend and the RiverVoice Community Choir with opera singer Tania Holland Williams. We have been meeting every Monday at St George’s Church and have taken inspiration from the stained glass windows and the history of Pocahontas to create our latest work. Earlier in the project Historian Christoph Bull gave a fascinating and enthusiastic talk on the life of Pocahontas.
To accompany our artwork, Tania and the RiverVoice Choir have created a new choral work ‘Remnants of a Name’ and we’ve been lucky enough to have both the art group and choir meeting in the church. It’s been really great to welcome new members to the group too and meet new volunteers from the Kent Association for the Blind. St George’s is a wonderful place to meet and everyone has been very welcoming, it’s been very easy for visitors to pop in and say hello.
We are taking part in the Voluntary Art Week 6-15th May and are inviting visitors to join us at St George’s on Saturday 7th May 10am – 1pm. You can create your own tactile artwork and if you’d like to test your vocal chords, RiverVoice will be happy to involve you.
Our celebration event will take place on Saturday 14th May 4-6pm, with an exhibition of art and the choral première of ‘Remnants of a Name’.
