8th-12th Jan 2021 | wherever you are
It's ONLINE SUMMER CAMP for creatives. Art making, workshops, creative worship, teaching and more.
This year Faith and the Arts draws creatives together online! Join us 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. We hope that in 2022 we'll be welcoming you in person once again to Australia’s longest running residential Christian arts event.
This is an event for any adult or mature teenager wanting to develop artistic skill and express their creativity and faith.
> A space for connection with other faith-filled creatives
> Inspiration and encouragement for your creative journey
> A great way to kick-start the year creatively
A typical day involves Zoom sessions for:
Morning and afternoon arts electives
Evening Gatherings with teaching and creative worship
We'll be sharing what we've learnt in our art and our faith in a final online showcase.
"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."
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 will further explore in daily morning and afternoon elective streams.
