The Faith and the Arts Summer School is an inspiring and practical week-long residential arts program that runs in early January each year. It offers the chance to focus on a variety of creative art forms in the context of an enlivening and supportive Christian faith environment. The Summer School takes place in the unique and picturesque setting of the Poatina village community in Tasmania’s heartland, nestled on the edge of the majestic Great Western Tiers, just 2hrs from Hobart and 45mins from Launceston.
Faith and the Arts is a celebration of life and the Great Creator; a chance for like-minded people to come together and give time and space to their own and each other’s creativity. Suitable for any adult or mature teenager, it is perfect for anyone wanting to explore their creativity, develop artistic skill, or express themselves and/or their faith. This fun-filled week will also deepen your understanding and experience of creating with the Great Creator as we explore the creative process itself through daily gatherings of creative worship and interactive teaching. New for 2017/18, participants can now choose more than one elective workshop to focus on for the week (20+ hours of elective workshop time), and whilst some artistic experience may be helpful, it is not required for any of the electives. Those wishing to explore their creativity for the first time are encouraged to embrace this opportunity to do so in a safe and supportive environment.
