HERE’S THE ORIGINAL POST:

Over the last year or so, I’ve been blogging about the “Digital Pilgrimage Project”, inviting you to think about pilgrimage and join in with workshopsThe project is now finished, and we would love to show you what we’ve done!

The Digital Pilgrimage Project has been a study of what pilgrimage is, and what it could be in a digital environment. Churches around Newcastle and Gateshead have created art inspired by the themes of “hope” and “journey”, responding to different aspects of the idea of pilgrimage.

We have created an app, too, so you can follow a walking trail around the town and city while looking at the different creations made during this project. The app is a prototype, so I would be particularly interested to hear what you think of it – your feedback will be a really important part of some academic research over the summer, reflecting on what we could learn from this Pilgrimage Project about spirituality, pilgrimage and the digital environment.

Now for the announcement:

There will be an exhibition of art, prayers and reflections in the Cathedral Church of St Nicholas, in the middle of Newcastle, from this Tuesday (April 21st) until Sunday May 3rd!

Visitors will be able to see the work that different churches and schools created, read prayers, download the new app and explore a beautiful new labyrinth created in the cathedral to celebrate the end of the project.

The exhibition is completely free, and the cathedral is open from 7am to 6pm every weekday, 7am-4pm on Saturdays and 7am-7:15pm on Sundays.

If you live anywhere near Newcastle, please come and visit and tell us what you think!
