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...

'No. Going. Back' by Kate Mounce

Kate Mounce is a theatre maker living in East London. She graduated from the London 
International School of Performing Arts (LISPA) in 2010 and has gone on to perform in, direct 
and produce a number of theatre shows. No. Going. Back. is her second installation.
Many themes and questions arose whilst making this piece, particularly on the subject of 
spiritual journeying. I was beginning to look at the idea of an authority defining how such a 
journey should unfold and how this might prevent a real meeting with God. It takes courage 
and not a little rebelliousness to go there but perhaps Christ can be often found in places 
considered ‘out of bounds’ in our lives or in the world. What occurs there, in meeting with 
God, may be unexpected and can often be unmasking. What does it mean to not return by 
the way we came?
