The Art of Ritual

Today Beyond hosted The Art of Ritual conference with support from the Westminster Faith Debates.  I brought together artists, celebrants, ritual practitioners, event designers and performers to look at the boundaries between all these roles and the place of ritual and art in contemporary human experience.

It was a fascinating day covering all sorts of interesting topics which we hope to blog about in more detail later.  But for now, here are a few photos from the event to give you a flavour of our day.

The opening ceremony encouraged us to focus on the creative spark in each of us.

Turning the remains of the sparklers in a creative bubble.

Cole Moreton invents a 'human sparkler' ritual.

Such happy, creative people!
