JOANNA BROWN & NEBIYU ASSEFA

4-27 Aug | 9:00-16:00 | FREE             

St John's Church, Princes Street, EH2 4BJ

This Jesus-centred peace and justice project emerged over a number of years following an idea conceived by the artist Joanna Brown (UK) when she met the painter Nebiyu Assefa (Ethiopia) in Addis Ababa. Threaded together by Biblical accounts, Nebiyu’s colourful paintings of Jesus are interwoven with Joanna’s photographs of modern day Israel and Palestine. The photographs are drawn from various trips to the region, including time spent as a guest of Palestine Fair Trade Association’s olive farmers, a peace-making delegation with CPT (Christian Peacemaker Teams) and visits to projects supported by the Bible Society.
