[All Nations] Arts for a Better Future Training

Consider expanding your creative palette of tools for cross-cultural community arts engagement, and learn how to be a better catalyst for co-creation and encourage local artistry in your community.

The Arts for a Better Future course is focused on community arts for God‘s purposes and how to create local artistry. It is currently a 5 day course held every year at All Nations Christian College UK in July (10-15 July 2022). If you would like to experience a shorter online taste and see option to explore a little further, then you can (2-3 hours).

Who is the Training For?

Artists, creative practitioners, community outreach workers, arts advocates, church leaders, worship leaders, mission leaders and teams, students.
