Taiwan: Inspiro Arts Alliance

Incarnate 2022

Incarnate is a carefully honed programme designed by artists for artists who are passionate about seeing vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached and marginalised.

Created for artists from all cultures, the experience is intensive, holistic discipleship and ministry training in community with other accomplished artists gathered from around the world.

Incarnate is an artist’s journey of discipleship, theology, and cross-cultural ministry.  Grow in your skill as an artist and understand the significance of your artistry in God’s eyes.  Learn the theology of creativity and arts in the kingdom of God.  Develop an approach for engaging the world through your artistic skill – particularly as a cross-cultural servant to the least-reached and marginalized.

You will learn from experienced cross-cultural artists practicing ministry in a variety of contexts while also learning to express, challenge, and encourage yourself and others in new ways through your art form.
The course takes place over two locations: a two-month residency of coursework, studio time, and community life followed by a two-month placement collaborating with local artists alongside an OM team.

The following tracks are currently offered.  These categories are open to artists and genres from any culture:
Music, Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre, Producer (Arts Facilitator). Specific details can be found at https://inspiroartsalliance.org/incarnate.
