ITIA artists invite you to examine with them what happens after the call.
The Transept – a group of practicing artists within the Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts (ITIA) – invites you to join us for an upcoming performance and exhibition.
‘After the Call’ offers space and time for celebration and reflection around the notion of being called unexpectedly to something unknown, or perhaps to something all-too-familiar that we suddenly realise.

Venue open from 12:00 to 17:00 each day.
Performance evening on 11th April at 19:00 – engaging and interdisciplinary performance with music, poetry and monologues.
