Events November 09

Wallspace, based at All Hallows Church, London Wall, is an exhibition suite that has been designed to explore the relationships between art and spirituality. This autumn the gallery continues its enthusiasm for fine art performance, which started with No Small Trifle by Bobby Baker back when Wallspace launched in  December 2006.

N09Events.jpgCreated in London and Beijing, 2012: An exploration of conspiracy is a dizzying performance of conspiracy theories that 'dances on the borders of truth and an apocalyptic imagination'. Its creator is Bill Aitchison, a performance artist based in London, but working nationally and internationally. His work has been described as 'political and insanely funny'. 2012 is promised to be 'a snapshot of uncertainty, of where desire and fear lead the contemporary imagination.'

The event takes place on November  12 at 7 for 7.30pm. The admission fee is £3 and you will need to book quickly as spaces are limited and expected to be in high demand. To do so email or call 020 7374 0555. Further details are available on the website, where you can also donate and sign up as one of Wallspace's 'Circle of Friends'

Sceptics will note the sponsorship from corporate investors AVIVA, but November sees the launch of National Ethical Investment Week. NEIW is a campaign run by the UKSIF, the sustainable investment and finance association. It is aimed at ensuring that people know that they have green and ethical options when it comes to their finance and investment decisions. UKSIF brings together advisers, charities and trusts, financial organisations, faith groups, NGOs and community groups to spread the word about green and ethical investing.

Together with the Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility UKSIF has produced a 14-page Action Guide for Church Groups, which can be downloaded here. Printed copies are available by calling 020 8965 9682.

The main event of the week is a debate to be held at Friends House on Euston Road, London. On November 19 Lord Harries of Pentregarth (former Bishop of Oxford) will chair a panel of speakers from Platform/ BankTrack, Triodos Bank, the Church Investors Group and the mainstream banking sector. Their subject will be The Future of Banking: Ethical & Sustainable? Entrace is free, but again you will need to book (events@; 020 8965 9682). Starts 4.30pm.
