i described the holyground project created by artist paul hobbs in partnership with cms several times in the run up to it trying to persuade people to send in shoes for it. it went brilliantly at greenbelt this year - was very powerful. there is a catalogue of the pictures and stories and a CD ROM with outlined suggestions for using them and 3 video interviews with paul hobbs. there are several ways you can engage with the project.
* get the catalogue which has all the images and stories and use them
* get the CD ROM which has various outlined suggestions for services using the stories - these are written with young people in mind but they are easily adaptable.
* get shoes and stories from your own community and create the same idea
* get your church community to book paul hoobs to set up holyground in an art gallery/church/community centre/school. you can download guidelines for booking it (pdf)
the catalogue and CD ROM are available from fuzzyedges
if you are the youthwork conference in eastbourne this weekend paul will be exhibiting there. say hi...
