  7. Newcastle Cathedral to Host Exhibition by Artists in Recovery from Addiction

    Comments Off on Newcastle Cathedral to Host Exhibition by Artists in Recovery from Addiction

    Newcastle Cathedral is set to host an exhibition showcasing work by artists in recovery from addiction to drugs, alcohol and harmful behaviours.

     The exhibition, entitled ‘AiR at the Cathedral’, is organised by Newcastle based not for profit Community Interest Company, Artists in Recovery, and runs from Saturday 8th to Saturday 29th September 2018.

    The exhibition, which is free to attend and open to all, is spread throughout the Cathedral and features sculpture, painting, photography, digital art and sound installations. There will be a video installation featuring artists interviews describing what recovery means to them and what part art has played in their recovery process.

    A VIP launch evening is also being held at the Cathedral on Wednesday 12th September to mark the official opening of the exhibition. Friends, family and press are cordially invited and there will be an opportunity to carry out interviews and speak with a wide range of people whose lives have been affected by addiction either personally or through family or friends. The event also provides opportunities for those seeking information or advice regarding addiction.

    During the two week long exhibition, Artists in Recovery volunteer guides will be available for questions and can signpost those who are suffering or worried about a loved one to community groups and projects aimed at recovery from addiction.

    Newcastle Cathedral has been very enthusiastic and accommodating in inviting AiR (Artists in Recovery) to make use of their incredible space. The Cathedral understands that addiction is a substantial problem in the North East and hopes that by collaborating with AiR it can raise the profile of recovery and place the Cathedral at the centre of significant issues affecting its community.

    The Venerable Geoff Miller, Acting Dean of Newcastle, said: “This is a really special collaboration for us. We fully support groups who come together in this way to give each other comfort and practical support to face their challenges. The Cathedral is deeply proud to be able to host the Artists in Recovery exhibition and we hope that all our visitors enjoy the fabulous artwork on display, appreciating the challenge and journey which lies behind each piece.”

The exhibits will be placed about the 15th century building and make the most of location and atmosphere. Both the Cathedral and the exhibition are free to enter and visitors are strongly encouraged to donate at one of the donation points (including contactless payments) to help the Cathedral carry out vital work within the local community and to help keep this historic building open for all to enjoy.

    John Sentamu’s Biography

    John Tucker Mugabi Sentamu was born into Uganda’s Buffalo clan on the 10th June 1949.

    He is the sixth of thirteen children. Encouraged in his education by English missionaries and teachers, he graduated in law from Makerere University, Kampala and is an Advocate of the High Court of Uganda. He practised Law both at the Bar and at the Bench before he came to the UK in 1974.

    He read theology at Selwyn College Cambridge where he gained a Masters Degree and a Doctorate. He trained for ordination at Ridley Hall, Cambridge, then part of the Cambridge Federation of Theological Colleges. Following his ordination in 1979 he served as Assistant Chaplain at Selwyn College, Cambridge. From 1979-1982 he was Chaplain at HM Remand Centre Latchmere House and Curate of St Andrew’s, Ham in the Diocese of Southwark.

    From 1982-1983 he was Curate of St Paul’s Church, Herne Hill, in South London and from 1983-1984 Priest-in-Charge at Holy Trinity, Tulse Hill and Parish Priest of St Matthias Upper Tulse Hill. He then became Vicar of the joint benefice of Holy Trinity and St Matthias from 1984-1986. Between 1987 and 1989 he was also Priest-in-Charge of St Saviour Brixton Hill.

    He was appointed Bishop for Stepney in 1996, Bishop for Birmingham in 2002 and Archbishop of York in 2005. He is Primate of England and Metropolitan, a member of the House of Lords and a Privy Councillor.

    From 1997 to 1999, Dr Sentamu was Adviser to the Stephen Lawrence Judicial Inquiry and he chaired the Damilola Taylor Murder Review in 2002. He chaired the NHS Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Screening Programme from 2001 to November 2013. He supported and advised workers affected by the closure of the Rover car plant in Birmingham and campaigned against guns, knives, drugs and gangs throughout the Midlands, after the killings of Charlene Ellis and Letisha Shakespeare and worked hard to ensure that their killers were brought to trial.

    What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

    Newcastle Cathedral is within easy reach of many public transport links:

    RAILWAY
    Newcastle Central Train Station is just five minutes’ walk from Newcastle Cathedral. When leaving Central Station, turn right along Neville Street. You will pass by the monument to George Stephenson, father of Robert Stephenson, as well as The Literary and Philosophical Society and the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers. Then follow Collingwood Street to bring you out at Newcastle Cathedral.

    CAR
    The nearest major public car park can be found on Dean Street. Walk out of the car park, cross straight over Dean Street and almost directly in front of you is a small stairway that brings you up into Amen Corner, at the back of the Cathedral. Follow the path left or right to approach the front entrance to the Cathedral. There are numerous other parking facilities, including multi-storey facilities and 48 surface car parks operated by Newcastle City Council. The Quayside’s multi-storey car park is approximately 12 minutes’ walk away and can hold up to 500 vehicles.

    PUBLIC TRANSPORT
    The Nexus operated Tyne and Wear Metro service operates into Newcastle city centre – with several stations in close proximity to Newcastle Cathedral. The nearest stations are Monument Station (at the top of the Grade I-listed Grey Street) and Central Station, both less than ten minutes’ walk away. If travelling from the Airport via Regent Centre, you will have to alight at Haymarket and change platforms.
    The Q1 QuayLink bus service runs to the bottom of the Side, the medieval Quayside street which leads up to the Cathedral. Public buses run outside of the Cathedral into Gateshead and towards Durham and Chester-le-Street once every 15 minutes (weekdays and Saturdays).

    ON FOOT
    From the city centre: Head down Grey Street, passing by the Theatre Royal. Turn right along Mosley Street, which will bring you out to the north facade of Newcastle Cathedral.
    From Central Station: As you leave Central Station, turn right along Neville Street. Following Collingwood Street will bring you to Newcastle Cathedral.
    From the Quayside: Alight the Side – the main medieval route into Newcastle. Alternatively, you can take Dog Leap Stairs. They’re steep but rise straight up to the Cathedral. The Castle Stairs are another route. These can be found on the Quayside, across the road from the Swing Bridge. Again, this is steep but will bring you to the Castle Keep. Keep forward along St Nicholas Street to approach the Cathedral on your right.
