Telling Encounters: Windows on the World

An Online Exhibition

Audio described video of artworks, shown in Windows on the World workshop at conference.

An online exhibition for Telling Encounters: Stories of Disability, Faith, Church and God. This online exhibition uses photographs, drawings, paintings, poems and prose to describe what we see and the window we look through. This could be an actual window in our homes or our particular frame / perspective / experience e.g. as wheelchair user, voice hearer etc.

Telling Encounters: Stories of Disability, Faith, Church and God was our 9th annual conference on disability & church in partnership between St Martin in the Fields & Inclusive Church. Devised during the pandemic, we were entirely online for the first time and hosted by HeartEdge. It was a steep learning curve to work out how to transition the conference to an online format with talks, workshops, small groups, liturgy, marketplace, chaplaincy and coffee hangout. Thanks to the disabled-led planning team and conference staff for making this work.

Sadly due to technical issues BSL & captions were not captured on all the recordings. Huge thanks to Rachel Noel, our tech lead, for the enormous undertaking of streaming, recording and rendering the films to be the best they can be.
