EUROPEAN ARTS INSTITUTE
The European Arts Institute (EAI) is in the process of being launched. The goal is to identify, network, include, and further empower existing Christian-based mentoring and arts training opportunities currently being offered across the European continent.
This educational and training network will provide an inspiring and encouraging growth environment for emerging and career artists; cast a vision for the significant role of the arts whether in mission, the church, the academy, or in the broader culture; foster artistic expression informed by a Biblical worldview, and operate from common core values and standards. > more
NATIONAL ROUND TABLES
Based on the pan-European model, National Arts Round Tables are encouraged in recognition of the importance of arts leaders coming together for mutual awareness, encouragement, prayer, and potential collaboration. This relational group of arts visionary leaders is intentionally trans-denominational and open for trans-cultural connections. Embracing common core values, National Arts Round Tables are unified in their desire to see God glorified in the Church life, educational endeavors, the public square, and mission initiatives, in their own national context. > more
