“It’s very interesting to me how it will work producing art projects in buildings which are strong public places – they are live religious spaces. I think this is very exciting for an artist and anyone interested in the nature of place. There’s a living tradition that is being upheld in a church.”
- Laura Purseglove, Project Curator, Art in Churches
