Art, faith and failure

Art, faith and failure

Led by Annie Naish & Debbie Lewer
Failure and foolishness, vulnerability and
doubt are part of being human. They abound
in Bible stories, change history and shape
our lives in surprising and sometimes painful
ways. They are also essential to artistic
creativity. This week is a chance to discover
the paradoxical, generative power of failure
– in art, life, and faith. Led by art historian
Deborah Lewer and Scargill Chaplain Annie
Naish, together we will explore works of
visual art from the Middle Ages to the
present and see how wisdom, beauty and
grace can come from things going wrong. Dr
Deborah Lewer is Senior Lecturer in History
of Art at the University of Glasgow and is a
regular speaker in faith contexts.
