Events - Sacred Sounds Seminar

We are delighted to have such an eminent cast of speakers for the second Sacred Sounds Seminar: Arts, Faith and Location. We are deeply honoured that the inaugural address will be delivered by Bhai Sahib Mohinder Singh OBE, KSG, Chairman, Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha (GNNSJ), Birmingham. We are also delighted that our other speakers include Mandeep Kaur, appointed in 2005 as the first Sikh Civilian Chaplain in the British Armed Forces and Nick Reed, Chief Executive, Town Hall and Symphony Hall Birmingham, who has a wealth of experience of heading mainstream theatres and concert halls in England and Wales.

This second seminar explores the dynamics of the staging of ambitious arts projects in Faith Centres. Hosting arts events in unusual locations is not a new concept. However, what makes for a potentially unique and richer relationship between mainstream venues and Faith Centres is the embedding of audiences from the latter into the former. This is a more creative way of diversifying arts audiences while also encouraging them to be experimental about the choices they make in relation to the arts events with which they engage on the whole.
