Arts & Culture
Working for justice, peace and reconciliation
that is anchored in the life and words of Jesus
We seek to develop new projects that inspire, challenge and bring good news. Our work helps build relationships in local communities and around the globe.
Does our work as an artist really matter?
Cru Arts & Culture offers a space to experience agape-love, shalom, respect, forgiveness and struggle.
We work to create and develop new artistic projects as we meet and journey together with artists both locally and around the world. We encourage collaboration with artists from various backgrounds and are particularly interested in highlighting emerging artists and giving them an opportunity to develop their work.
We highlight the work of emerging artists and give diverse opportunities to develop relationships and connections.
Through the internship program, we help emerging artists better understand and live out the integration of art and faith.
Through the residency with Transform, we seek to catapult emerging artists to the next phase in pursuing a professional career in their particular creative industry either the visual or performing arts.
