Pocketing Prayer, Pedagogy, and Purple Hair: A Story of Place and Belonging, 2010–2015
Keywords: public art, spirituality, visual art, art practice, local history
AbstractThe Prayer Pocket Place, is the ideal public pedagogical outcome of visual artistic practise. Its
historical links, practical progressions, and successful teaching and learning processes are framed
using narration, testimonials and the initiator’s reflections. These outline Pockets’ transformative
articulation of its tricky subject matter – spirituality in the public sphere – and disclose how its
widespread public endorsement and lasting place / belonging were gained.
