Welcome to this lockdown edition of ART WORKS, our magazine for ART Members and those on the ART Training Scheme.

The ringing world has changed completely since the February edition of ART WORKS and to reflect this we've produced side-by-side editions of ART WORKS and Tower Talk, both of which are focussing on how bands, ringers and teachers are adapting to this change. The magazines cover such things as:

  • The use of webinars to teach and to learn
  • The rise of YouTube
  • People giving talks via online conference platforms
  • Ringing social events that are still thriving
  • Quizzes, puzzles and fantasy competitions
  • Online ringing on one and two bells
  • The rise of Minimus quarter peals
  • Handbell ringing
  • Correspondence courses

Just shows what an inventive lot bell ringers are, but if you find this scary we've also included a few how-to guides. A word of warning – the articles are all correct at the time of going to press, but the technology is evolving, so be prepared to ask a friend if they aren't working exactly as we describe.

If you like ART WORKS, why not read Tower Talk? It, too, is all about lockdown, but covers different activities and is told from the ringers' perspective.

Finally, I've decided not to include any articles from pre-lockdown as events such as the ART Conference and the ART Awards seem so distant now. You can always look at the relevant pages of this website if you're interested in finding out more.
