Ben Quash - Reading the Bible with a Great Company of Artists

Wednesday 16th October • 7pm – 8:15pm • Free

The Visual Commentary on Scripture, TheVCS.org, is the first significant online project to introduce visitors to the entirety of Christian Scripture in the company of art and artists. Celebrated with a launch event in November 2018 at Tate Modern, TheVCS.org seeks to connect the worlds of art and religion as a one-of-a-kind resource for scholars, educators, churches and interested readers looking for insightful, original explorations of art and the Bible.

In this talk, Canon Ben Quash, the project’s director, will share some of the challenges and discoveries he has encountered so far in this ambitious undertaking.
