ADVENTurous is an open submission exhibition exploring the christmas narrative, which we're staging in 3 UK venues during advent this year : at Engedi in Colwyn Bay, Leftbank in Leeds and the Union Chapel in Islington, London.

The work exhibited at Union Chapel will also be part of the one-day ‘ADVENTurous' conference, hosted by Greenbelt Festival and partners.

On this blog we'll be posting regular updates about how plans for the Leftbank Leeds show are progressing, with information about the contributing artists, and possibly some previews of the work being created for the exhibition...

'Ministry of Economics' by Rhys Jones

Rhys is a Photographer, Visual artist and Researcher whose current work involves research which 
encompasses the connections between art and neuroscience and tries to offer some non-scientific 
explanations to explain and help diagnose and treat some of the mysteries of conditions on the 
autism spectrum.

Rhys's current practice explores random and chance connection by visual,written and performed 
elements. He has worked in collaboration with a number of artists to develop ideas and 
experiments into art forms and vehicles for further research, learning and teaching.

Rhys has a particular research interest in understanding further what is or maybe happening in 
our minds and bodies when we engage in an artistic activity - taking a photograph, drawing, 
painting, sketching, writing a poem or story, composing and playing music, making a sculpture 
or thinking about all those activities when performing other routine daily activites or watching 
or listening to the work of others.

Rhys holds a BA (Hons) in Latin, Ancient History and Classical Philosophy from the University 
of London and an MA in Photography : Contemporary Dialogues from Swansea Metropolitan 
University. Rhys is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS).
