In an increasingly secular society Threesixteen wishes to reach out to challenge individuals and engage them through art and photography in the discussion of faith. Threesixteen seeks to nurture an active and credible Christian presence within the arts by providing a challenging programme of high quality exhibitions, talks and discussions.
The Norwegian Church Arts Centre is a landmark building situated in Cardiff Bay. Formerly a Church for Norwegian Sailors, the iconic building dates back to the industrial revolution, when Cardiff Docks was the world’s greatest exporter of coal. Today the renovated Norwegian Church looks out over the waterfront and provides a cultural centre, art gallery and café.
Since 2003 Threesixteen photographer Lathan Ball has supported, photographed and filmed Counties evangelist Clive Cornish’s unique walks, runs and climbs. During these amazing journeys Clive carried a 12ft x 6ft wooden cross and his extraordinary adventures have included ascents of Britain’s highest mountains and a forty day walk from John O’Groats to Land’s End.
In the Bible the number 40 is often associated with times of testing, trial and preparation. Threesixteen is now assembling 40 photographs and preparing a photography exhibition for display in the Norwegian Church Art Gallery. The exhibition entitled “Forty Day & Forty Nights” will run from the 3rd to 16th June 2019 and will take viewers on a challenging and uplifting journey.
We are also considering an online brochure or “app” to support the exhibition and are preparing talks and multimedia presentations to accompany the event. If you would like to support this project or work with Threesixteen please make a donation or contact us using the links below. Thank you.
