Why Foolproof?

Historically, the fool serves as the truth teller in the royal court. Through jokes, tricks and comedy, the fool has the power to challenge and provoke with impunity.

Meanwhile, in the Bible, Paul speaks about the foolishness and wisdom of God:

“Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe…For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.”
1 Corinthians 1:20-21, 25

We believe that God wants to use foolish things (and people!) to challenge and provoke, and to share the upside-down, seemingly foolish message of the gospel. We hope that our artistic efforts will challenge some of the wisdom of the world.

What do we believe?
We are an arts outreach charity with a Christian foundation. We believe that all people have innate creativity regardless of their race, gender, age, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, religion or cultural background. With this in mind we want to:

  • Encourage people to discover, use and develop their creative talents
  • Build community through the arts
  • Nurture and disciple young Christians with particular creative gifts
  • Demonstrate Jesus through our work and our approach to it
  • Connect with others in the arts community in Scotland

We adhere to the Evangelical Alliance basis of faith.
