Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices

The Welcome Wagon--Vito Aiuto, a Brooklyn-based Presbyterian minister, and his wife Monique-- released a new album yesterday, through Sufjan's Asthmatic Kitty Records.

Vito explains:
“This album has a somewhat liturgical structure, ordered loosely like a worship service. It begins with the existential and cosmic dread of ‘I’m Not Fine,’ immediately followed by ‘My God, My God, Parts 1 & 2,’ a prayer that rails against God’s seeming absence from this world and our lives. The words are adapted from the prayer of Jesus while he hung on the cross.  
“It continues with the assurance of redemption (‘I Know That My Redeemer Lives’), which then extends to friendship with God and with one another (‘Rice & Beans,’ ‘High’).”

My Dog, My House, Our Newcastle Launch

Photo by Richard Fish
We are delighted to be able to invite you to the launch of My Dog, My House, Our Newcastle exhibition on Saturday 23rd June 2012.

Following photography workshops at THB in March led by Richard Fish and Louise Todd, Newcastle-based photographers and Graduate Studio Northumbria artists, children were given disposable cameras and asked to document their lives, finding beauty in the ordinary and everyday. The exhibition will feature photographs taken by Year 3/4 students from St Catherine’s Primary, Sandyford and Christchurch School Shieldfield, alongside the work of the artists.
The launch will begin with a garden party from 4pm which will also feature musical and dramatic performances by the students as well as home-made lemonade, strawberries & cream and garden games. Rumour has it that the circus will be there too!

From 6.30pm there will be a wine reception...and the garden games will continue.

My Dog, My House, Our Newcastle is part Outside/In--a programme of exhibitions inspired by London 2012, involving young people and adults from different parts of Newcastle, showcasing their histories, cultures and communities.
