About GATHER ARTS
GATHER ARTS brings artists, creatives and those who work in the cultural spheres together in their town or city to encourage one another in both their creative practice and their spiritual walk, to share ideas, build friendships and collaborations and pray for one another. We hope to help you listen together to gain a creative vision for your place, and extend Gods kingdom of beauty, truth and goodness beyond the walls of the church and out into our communities and cultural spaces. We hold to the values of honour not competition, of seeking beauty whilst also holding in balance the paradox of suffering and lament, of re-imagining our places by demonstrating creative expressions of goodness, truth, love and compassion. We invite you to share this journey with us.
We share stories of arts ministries and practices from across the world, and plan to host a directory of artists and arts organisations that churches can access to invite to collaborate with them in mission, worship, discipleship and the re-imagining our places.
We plan to create a resources section with a recommended reading list and links to videos and talks around themes associated with art, faith and theology helping creatives to research, learn and develop by contextualizing their practice.
We are also developing a How to…. section with practical ideas and information about how to lead or host various art projects and exhibitions in your town/city.
If you are a Christian creative artist or arts organisation and would like to be share your story with us, or if you already host or are interested in hosting a gathering of Christians in the Arts in your town or city then we’d love to hear from you.
