Welcome to FATA! Here you can see what was on offer this year and get an idea of what you can look forward to at FATA24.
After 2 years online we can finally welcome you back to POATINA for everyone's favourite SUMMER CAMP for creatives!
So come to Tassie and get creative as we hone skills and learn together.
Yes, we're returning to our residential mode here in beautiful Poatina and hope you'll be returning to this thriving hive of inspired creativity for FATA23. Together we'll be celebrating life with the Great Creator as we give time and space to our faith-art journey.
Suitable for any adult or mature teenager.
Connect with other faith-filled creatives
Get inspired and encouraged on your creative journey
Kick-start the year creatively in community
A typical day involves:
Morning and Afternoon Electives
Late Owl Artist Talks and Prayer Room
Our Showcase is a wonderful opportunity to share what we’ve been learning and working on.
Evening Gatherings are the engine room of the FATA journey. We'll worship creatively together, get inspired and challenged together, and learn through listening, doing and discussing.
Find time and space to reflect, breathe and be (or bee...!). Connect as a community and be together with God. Think, talk and pray about how our faith can infuse our art, and how our art can enliven our faith.
Our team will curate and facilitate these times to draw our focus to our theme and scripture, to fuel our FATA journey for the week.
