Today is an exciting day for Proost as we launch our first Kickstarter campaign.
Our project is Future Present, a new zine in collaboration with the Church Mission Society and their wonderful band of pioneers and missional entrepreneurs.

We are excited that our next 'Proost on Tour' live event is coming up with Martin Daws, next Fruday 25 May in Sheffield. 

Proost on Tour events are a heady mix of music, spoken word and an Open Mic intro which gives you the opportunity to share your work.  Last month our Proost on Tour event in Earlsfield was headlined by Ruth Wells who had contributed to our Open Mic in Oxford just one year ago, so who knows what'll happen to your poems and contribution.

Thomas Merton once said...

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” 

This is one of the things I love most about being involved with the Proost family.  The simultaneous experience of both finding direction in the incredible work we hear about and share but also getting utterly lost, unable and unsure which direction things will take next.  

There's a few new developments to let you know about from Proost HQ. 

“I imagine Lent for you and for me as a great departure from the greedy, anxious anti-neighbourliness of our economy, a great departure from our exclusionary politics that fears the other, a great departure from self-indulgent consumerism that devours creation. And then an arrival in a new neighborhood, because it is a gift to be simple, it is a gift to be free; it is a gift to come down where we ought to be.”
