We’re really excited about our ONLINE SUMMER CAMP for creatives again this year.  Art Making, workshops, creative worship, teaching and more.  


We plan to return to our usual residential mode here in beautiful Poatina as a FATA23 Hybrid event with online option, but for this January join us online on Friday night and for four full days of our usual celebration of life with the Great Creator - a chance for like-minded people to come together to give time and space to their 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 Zoom sessions for:

  • Morning and Afternoon Electives

  • Evening Gatherings

  • Late Owl Artist Talks, Prayer Room and informal catch-ups


Our online Showcase is a wonderful opportunity to share what we’ve been learning and working on.


We love chewing on the gritty stuff of faith, creativity, theology and worship together -
this year in the evenings, over Zoom.

Find space to reflect and consider, connect as a community, express worship through creative skills of all kinds, think and talk about the stuff that makes us tick as Christians and as creatives.  

A team of facilitators, musicians, and speakers weave together a unique and unforgettable journey throughout the event, which participants can further explore in daily morning and afternoon elective streams.

Keynote Speaker

Eugene Wong is a curator of humans. He’s passionate about helping people embody their true identity so they can flourish relationally.

He has been a cultural leader for almost 20 years, including as part of Candlelight Productions, the Melbourne Creative Professionals network, and the Centre for Building Better Community.

Eugene is now the Chief Story Shaper for A Stronger Narrative, coaching people and organisations to hone their identity and strategically increase their impact.

He believes that identity and relationships are the two issues that will drive society over the next 20 years and that storytelling - in all its forms - is a key way to speak into these.

"I have laughed, I have cried,

I have sighed & now I’m ready to fly!"

"enjoyed the freedom in worship and 'being' during gatherings"
"had my faith and art challenged, encouraged and nurtured"
"...so organised with lots of information but gave us
freedom to put our own creativeness in"
"Replete. Full to the brim. I return home overflowing with peace."

Choose one AM and one PM four-day elective stream. You can see our schedule here.
Options include retreat mode and our suite of individual afternoon Mix It Up workshops.
