Craig Detwiler is film maker, professor, writer and promoter of the arts in the Church. In this video (re-posted from his website) he passionately offers a call to ALL artists in the Church to create and inspire the world by harnessing beauty and creating great art for the Kingdom. Let me know what you think in the comments section below, and… let’s do something about it. I am thinking of an “Arts Collaborative” or arts center in Ventura County (and beyond…) where we can create Kingdom art… music, sculpture, graphics, film, music, photos, paintings – all of it. There are SO many churches around with no creative teams or dreams. So many creatives that sit and watch each week, not being available for kingdom advancement. What if we all got together and made something new… collected a bunch of people together and made a difference in our community, our world. I know that *I* want to do this a lot more. I think that there is an avenue for it, one that will support an arts center… but there needs to be some organization in this dream.
I am still dreaming and scheming of a way to get Blue Sky Arts Center, and all that it can be, off the ground… perhaps it can me many things. A training ground, a catalyst, an arts incubator. What do you think? Wanna be part of it?
