Three Questions

 

 

A project aimed at students interested in exploring spirituality through their arts practice, in conversation with others, around the following three questions*

 

 

This project will be self-directed, with opportunities for peer-mentoring through online seminars, and 1:1 mentoring support from the project team:

Harrie Cedar is an associate faith advisor to UAL, Jewish chaplain at King’s College London, and a Healthcare Chaplain at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital. Over many years of post-doctoral research, Harrie has created a philosophy linking homeostasis and health. This philosophy can be applied to people and to the planet; in spiritual practice, they see this as the restoration of the person to themselves.

Mark Dean is a chaplain and interfaith advisor to UAL, based at Central Saint Martins, Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon, and coordinates Arts Chaplaincy Projects. Before ordination in 2010, Mark taught Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, and the Ruskin School, Oxford University, and has exhibited internationally since the 1990’s. Mark recently completed the three year Encounter course in spiritual direction.

William Whitcombe is Lead Chaplain at UAL, based at High Holborn, London College of Fashion and London College of Communication. William is also a Priest in Ordinary to HM The Queen in the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace. Before training for ordination, William’s first degree was in Art History and World Art Studies, and he maintains an active interest in the arts. William is also a qualified and experienced coach.


* These three questions were formulated by Hillel the Elder in the 1st Century, but remain practical and relevant to this day — particularly in the current crisis.
