Preview in the List:

Returning to the Arches for the first time since their successful, eponymous exhibition as part of the Glasgow International in 2005, which focused on moments of everyday life, "Hole in my Pocket" now turn their attention onto the slippery and dangerous topic of religion.

With the Pope coming to town next month, it seemed like a good time to open that divisive question of religion and see what could be found. Our current generation say they have no religion, in a 2006 Guardian poll 63% of people said they were not religious. Hole in my Pocket have therefore set out to steal all the best bits from other religions and form a new religion of their own - Himptology. It will be a democratic religion based around the ideas of creativity (not creation) and part of their new Arches exhibition will focus on audience interaction, asking where mainstream religion has been going wrong and calling for suggestions for what a new 21C belief system could entail.

"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 well as the main exhibition Hole in my Pocket are also organising a series of three unusual social events which are shaping up to be great fun and rather unique and exciting experiences. The events, entitled "Hole in my Pocket: The Sunday Service", will use the framework of a traditional Church service to present new art work and performance. They will be an exploration of the creative industries in Glasgow and a celebration in creativity in general. See more

Edinburgh Short Film Festival New Music/Old Horror

Earlier this year we were approached by UNESCO to help them with their annual RLS Day celebrations - staged mid November each year - to commemorate the birth of the late, great Scottish writer, Robert Louis Stevenson.The idea we eventually landed on, was to screen excerpts of the 1920 silent version of ‘Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde’ featuring the great, silent-era actor John Barrymore and to ask an Edinburgh based composer to score a new, contemporary soundtrack for it and perform it live.
