Faith and art make exclusive claims on the soul. Both demand complete integrity and devotion. So it's common for artists who are also Christians to feel a certain tension! Some feel pressure to compromise their artistry, while others compromise the content and practice of their faith. But is it possible, even desirable, to accommodate both? This free, online* mini-conference will explore this question, and assert:

  • that a deep and orthodox Christian faith can enhance and enable true artistry, and 

  • that authentic artistry can inform and deepen a Christ centered, Gospel driven faith.
