The idea stemmed from the concept of bad education, how children tend to be vocationally trained rather than imbued with the wonder of learning.

This is a really interesting short animation about education, my friend who is a bit of a film buff set up a short film night at the Chagford Art Festival this summer, it was projected on the side of a van outside Blacks cafe…very cool. Brand Spanking was one of the shorts that he showed and it really made an impact on me.

Synopsis

The first day of a new term and the local school reopens with a flourish of ribbons and some swanky new equipment all paid for by three generous companies. Everything seems wonderful, swanky new equipment for the pupils, even the teachers can take it easy with their lesson plans all taken care of. But do these companies have the best interests of the schoolchildren deep within their hearts? One boy suspects this is not all philanthropic gesture.

This would be a great short to watch with a young people to talk about education, advertising etc.

How cool is this! Jonny Baker found a Jesus made from quality street wrappers on the holy table in a church in birmingham… theologically reflect on that!


Stencil Art

I really love stencil art [Sometimes called Gorilla art]. One of the things I love about it is that almost anyone with imagination can do it! [Learn how to<!– D(["mb","]. Also a lot of stencil art you see on the\nstreet has a political or at least a thought providing theme.

A few\nideas to do with stencil at:

\n\n

Get a\ngroup to stencil a wall at your building to a theme [justice, grace etc].

\n\n

Do an\noutside wall with a modern day biblical scene using stencil images from modern\nday life, how about a old lady with shopping bags at the foot of the cross\n[Mary]. How about a typical modern day\nprostitute image being judged by religious leaders, talking to a modern day 30\nsomething Jesus [John 8:7]. Basically\nhow would the gospel stories look modern day and then stencil them out.
