Quartz at Youthbeatz

Youthbeatz is a youthfestival which attracts 1200 young people annually. This makes it the largest of its kind in Scotland and probably the UK. It is ticketed, but free, and organised and run largely by young people from Dumfries.

Following our work in Dumfries schools, Quartz were invited to set up in the Health and Wellbeing section. Volunteers wore clothing to represent the timespan between St Queran establishing himself in the Dumfries area (somewhere between 700 and 800AD, See Anne Shuckmans previous magazine article) and the present day. This represented our activities connection to the continuous presence of Christian Spirituality for well over a thousand years, and it’s relevance to the ways in which people explored spirit and truth before then.

Visitors were encouraged to Walk the Labyrinth and pick up a meditation card (#SensingOtherness), Participate in an organic weave (#sensingMeaningfulness) , And to capture fleeting thoughts from the internet, with a feather, using caligraphy. (#SensingValues)

Canopy of Flames

 

The latest art installation is called a “Canopy of Flames”

In preparation for Pentecost, where we remember the presence of the Holy Spirit. Everyone was encouraged to write on a ribbon to recognise the presence of good and Godly things, thoughts and feelings in their lives. These thoughts were combined to make a “Canopy of Flames” for Pentecost. The flames were then woven with a warp and a ground weft to make a wall hanging where three become one – for Trinity Sunday.
