Sketch Walk: ‘Don’t forget me’ David Oluwale Bridge and Hibiscus Rising

This event has been organised by Leeds City of Sanctuary and Leeds Church Institute. They describe it as follows:

You are invited to join Leeds artists to sketch the city at night, and get a fresh perspective on its fascinating history.

Learn about David Oluwale, the British Nigerian and Leeds resident whose personal story inspired local people to create a lasting legacy to mark his life in the beautiful Hibiscus Rising sculpture by artist Yinka Shonibare.

———————————–

All art materials will be provided and we really mean it when we say no experience is necessary.

Wear suitable clothing for the weather conditions on the day, we encourage you to wear layers and bring along something waterproof if you are planning to sit down whilst sketching.

We want everyone who attends this event to have a positive experience, and feel reassured that everyone is welcome and will be treated with respect.

A mental health first aider will be available at this event.

We will meet at 43 The Calls and walk to the David Oluwale Bridge, then to Aire Park to see the Hibiscus Rising sculpture.

Churches Against Racism 2024 @ New testament Church of God

This event has been organised by Leeds Church Institute. They write:

How can we build truly anti-racist churches and an anti-racist City?

How do we put anti-racism into action?

Hear leaders from diverse churches in Leeds share experience, best practice and wisdom from dealing with racial discrimination.

You will hear stories of division and hope in unity, then join together to talk practically and theologically about moving into action.

This city-wide event will serve as a catalyst for anti-racist action and reflection across Leeds churches.

All are welcome to this ecumenical evening of panel discussions, conversations and prayer. Please join us for light refreshments after hearing from the Bishops, Pastors and Priests.

There will be a time of Q&A after the panel discussion.
