Education is for questions, not for solid and secure answers.
In collaboration with different Religion & Belief institutions and communities in the city we aim to offer a space to look at some of the difficult issues around community cohesion, dialogue and the interface between academic research and peoples’ religion & belief identity.
This term things are different due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Hopefully we can return to some real life events after the summer.
Gaia at Leicester Cathedral
Leicester Cathedral is excited to host Gaia, an art installation by Luke Jerram, from 17 May – 6 June 2021. Luke is known globally for his innovative arts practice and large-scale public artworks such as the Museum of the Moon, which was previously hosted at the Cathedral in 2018 and 2019.
Each day there will be opportunity for people to visit and to engage, drawing our attention to the wonder of creation and of our need to address the eco-crisis. There will also be a series of events with their inspiration drawn from every continent of the world.
Measuring seven metres in diameter, Gaia features detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface. The artwork provides the opportunity to see our planet on this scale, floating in three-dimensions.
