After the Storm?

September 2021

Storms often leave damage to lives and property, followed by a period of calm and then the enormous energy needed to rebuild. The Covid pandemic, which is still raging in parts of the world, hit our country 18 months ago and everyone has been affected in some way.
To help each other rebuild we need to take a moment to remember the effect of the damage, personally, in our families and friendships, our community and country. “After the Storm?” invites you to take time to reflect and consider what you have lost and how you can move forward into calm.
“After the Storm?” is a series of events taking place at St Stephen’s Church, Norwich in September. It will be free and open to all.

 

Exhibition

Well respected Norfolk artists Frances Martin, Richard Cleland, Gwyneth Fitzmaurice, Liz Monahan, Mandy Rogers, L.S Walker and Helen Wells will provide visual images to help us reflect on the last 18 months. The exhibition will run alongside the Café during normal opening times. Frances Martin had an exhibition in the cathedral hostry last year as the lockdown started in March 2020. 

An interactive space will include materials for use by the public to express for themselves how they perceive the pandemic and how they reflect on the times of lockdown.

Any donations will go towards the work of St Stephen’s which includes supporting the homeless and restoring the organ which is part of Norwich’s musical heritage.

All events are free of charge and open to all.
