Advent Thanks!

There are just two days left of Advent + Adventure. Thank you to everyone who came out to the Advent Preview and to everyone who visited the exhibition over the past few weeks.

Congratulations to Kay Steven who won Best in Show! And to Omi Pharncote, James Sebright, Jayamini da Silva, who received Honorable Mentions, from the jurors at situationRHUBARB. We look forward to planning a show with Kay Steven in the New Year!

A final thanks the fine local businesses who sponsored the prizes: Pink Lane Coffee, the Biscuit Factory Kitchen, and Teasy Does It. Support your local businesses!

There are a few more great photos of the preview by photographer, Andy Barker after the jump!

“For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the site of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory, and the glory of your people Israel.” Luke 2:30-32

Friday 7th December, 18.30-22.00

The Christmas tinsel monster is looming, and while the festive season is an exciting but busy season for many,  we invite you to join us in to taking some time out from the endless shopping lists and parties to reflect on what Advent and Christmas might really mean for us all. The evening will be an opportunity to corporately and individually respond to advent as a time anticipation for Jesus’ coming, his life and his ministry, but also his return and our preparation and expectation for this. There will be space engage with each other and God through music, discussion, drawing, dance, prayer, food and the scriptures, all the things we love at the Holy Biscuit!
We will be praying specifically for
  • God's blessing in the arts in Newcastle and for the work of the Holy Biscuit.
  • Cuts by Newcastle City Council to Arts Funding
  • Christian artists in the development of their professional practice
  • Greater collaboration in the arts scene in Newcastle
We would love to see you there! There will also be an opportunity to see our ADVENTURE & ADVENTURE exhibition, which is currently showing. Go to our Facebook event and let us know you are coming.
If you have anything that you think we should be focusing our prayers on, do get in touch.

'Christmas is happening' is happening

It's happening indeed.

The project, in it's third year, pairs one artwork with one piece of music, for each day leading up to Christmas day.

Enjoy this kickoff to the advent project with a futuristic interpretation of Christmas in 2040. The Earth as we know it is no more, and neither is Christmas. There is no snow or Christmas trees because we all live underwater, though some festive traditions are still kept in this post-apocalyptic underwater encampment.
