Failure and foolishness, vulnerability and doubt are part of being human. They abound in Bible stories, change history and shape our lives in surprising and sometimes painful ways. They are also essential to artistic creativity. This week is a chance to discover the paradoxical, generative power of failure – in art, life, and faith. Led by art historian Deborah Lewer and Scargill Chaplain Annie Naish, together we will explore works of visual art from the Middle Ages to the present and see how wisdom, beauty and grace can come from things going wrong.
Dr Deborah Lewer is Senior Lecturer in History of Art at the University of Glasgow and is a regular speaker in faith contexts.
