What is the Arts Network?
Often it can feel as though we are being forced to choose between our commitment to Christ or our commitment to our creative practice. The Arts Network exists as a community to help support students within the arts to create, think, live and speak for Christ as you pursue the creative gifts God has given you.
Some of the creative fields we support: film, fashion, fine art, architecture, performance, creative writing, design, theatre, interior design.... and many others!

What is Happening in the Arts Network?
Local Interface Hubs
A space for creative students to build community - gathering together on a regular basis to share fellowship, discuss relevant topics, and generally build each other up and point each other towards Jesus.
Our website is filled with resources that aim to support you as an individual or your local Interface Hub to help you think biblically about the arts, to encourage you to speak authentically and creatively about your faith, and live for Christ in your creative field.
Throughout the year we will join together as creatives from across the UK to enjoy teaching and fellowship. These events will be both in person and digital. More information about upcoming events can be found here.
