Croydon Council held a Congress of Culture on Thursday, 18 January. The day brought 200 delegates, including our own Revd Catherine, together for ‘buzzy’ discussions on the links between art and well being, art and young people. It was also good to explore talking with people about the links between faith, spirituality and the arts.
Croydon is putting a bid in to be the first ‘London Borough of Culture’, as chosen by the Mayor of London, in 2019. Let’s pray Croydon wins as it would help the area regenerate.
