Beatitudes Exhibition Now Open

We are so pleased to be able to write with news that our wonderful Beatitudes exhibition opened at Swansea Grand Theatre on 21 November 2016 and will remain on view until 4 Feb 2017.

These eight pieces of work from seven different artists cover a wide variety of art mediums and pack a real punch as each artist poured their heart and soul into their work, drawing on Jesus’ words know as ‘The Beatitudes’ in Matthew’s Gospel chapter five.

For the last ten years this work has been based at Zac’s Place and now is available to a wider audience. You can view that work for free on Level two of the exhibition area of the theatre whenever the threat is open, which is usually daily from 9.30am and until the end of the evening performances in the main house or the depot theatre.

Please find below a few pictures from our opening night – hopefully they’ll serve as enough of a taster to get you along! It was great to have a couple of the artists there too!

And here’s how they got there! 
These cases now mean that the exhibition is available to travel to other venues.

Saturday 4th July, 7.30pm
Zac’s Place, George Street,Swansea, SA1 4HH

Martyn Joseph is pleased to announce what promises to be a very memorable and unique evening with his special guest Bob Harris OBE, in aid of Zac’s Place in Swansea.

Martyn’s Let Yourself Trust has been promoting and raising funds for Zac’s Place over the last 6 months on both sides of the Atlantic. Zac’s Place supports homeless people in crisis and provides them with new opportunities. For some it is the only safe haven in their lives, offering love, support and acceptance. The charity is the third project Let Yourself has been working with after a Children’s Theatre in Palestine and an orphanage in Guatemala, and this evening will be a beautiful culmination of their partnership and fund raising during this time as well as shining a light on the amazing work done at Zac’s Place.

The show will feature MJ doing what he does best, bringing his “stunning heartfelt music” to an intimate audience at Zac’s Place, along with Q and A time with both Martyn and Bob and also Sean Stillman, Zac’s founder, will talk about the inspiring work they do.

Martyn Joseph is a powerful singer and songwriter gifted with the rare ability to speak to the soul with his expressive and poignant lyrics. With a career spanning 30 years, 32 albums, over a half a million record sales and thousands of live performances, the versatility of his music touches genres of folk, rock, soul, folk-funk and Americana, yet somehow all these labels cannot define the spirit of his music

Bob Harris is a legend, pure and simple.
Described by ‘Radio Times’ as ‘one of the greats of British contemporary music broadcasting and an independent champion of great music’ and by the ‘Mail On Sunday’ as ‘a national treasure’, Bob has been at the centre of the British music industry for nearly forty years.

Don’t miss this opportunity to share in what will be an unforgettable up close and personal event.

 Stories from the street community, working with actors devising material for a presentation this Friday – small ideas that we hope will develop into a bigger platform. Wonderful to see the creativity out of chaos.
 

Health Day Success

Thanks to all who took part in the Health Day at Zac’s Place on Nov 1st.

Many of our friends have complex problems and they are served best by a good team effort of dedicated volunteers and skilled professionals from across several agencies – which included the Big Issue, The Wallich, SANDS, nursing and mental health team staff from Cyrenians St Matthews, dental and podiatry experts and student nurses. Here’s some of the wonderful crew …
