Hole in my Pocket @ The Arches 2010

We (Hole in my Pocket) have been asked to design a new exhibition for the Arches, opening night 10 September. We weren't sure what the theme of our show would be, but a couple of ideas we didn't develop the last time, coupled with the Pope's visit to Glasgow in September has given us a direction to set off in and our new show will now be exploring Religion. Its a dangerous and large subject to have fun with but we shall try our best to play with some ideas, invoke some humour and try very, very hard not to offend anyone. Fingers crossed.

"Bringing their thoughts on faith, belief and belonging to the Arches, Hole in my Pocket form their own religion and ask you to become a true believer."

As part of the show we will also be holding an event called The Sunday Service every Sunday.

"Hole in my Pocket invite you to join them for the Himp Sunday Service, an alternative to Sunday School for creative types. Come along and hear a series of sermons from top artists, designers and performers about their chosen fields, find out what inspires them and celebrate the Church of Creativity in style with some group karaoke, readings from Moby Dick and a nice cup of tea. Sundays 19 September and 3, 10 October 1 -2.30pm."

That's where we need the creative world of Glasgow to get involved. We have a few people already pencilled in to give a sermon (talk about their work) but we are looking for more. We are open to all ideas from any creative fields - artists, musicans, dancers, designers, sculptures, performers and would like a mix of people talking about their own work and the work of others who inspire them, or really on any other related topic. Talks will be with a slide show presentation of your images and will last around 5 mins. We'll keep things short and snappy in a kind of Pecha Kucha style so it will be a really fun, lighthearted and relaxed way to tell people about your work. There will be tea and scones served once its all done which will allow everyone to mingle and chat about all things creative.
As well as sermon givers are also looking for readers and suggestions for interesting passages from books, poems and other things that could make interesting readings and if anyone is in/ or knows a choir who would be interested in leading the singing through some pop hits then that would be ace.

If any of the above sounds interesting then please give us an email with your suggestions and a link to your work at
