“It was the first time I realized that painting could capture the Word of God, speak into people’s lives and give me the opportunity to share my faith.”

Janice T. (Alliance & Short-term team member)


Every day all around the globe, artists on mission are creating, cultivating, and contributing in their communities. As they seek to see their art used in the work the Lord is doing, we want to share their stories to encourage and inspire.
This blog is a place to read those stories, giving you a glimpse into how the Lord is using the arts around the world.

ArtsLabyrinthPg1invite art experience shortEDITED

Are you a visual artist or musician looking for a unique opportunity? Our partners in Belgium are hard at work planning and preparing a traveling art exhibition using the early Christian motif of the labyrinth to feature both historic Flemish and contemporary artwork.

See the following: 

We invite visual artists to collaborate with us in "The Art Experience Labyrinth: See the Lamb of God." Together we will tell the story—of creation; the fall; the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus; and the choices of humanity and their eternal implications. The story will be told through a selection of Flemish art (1400-1600) and contemporary works. 
• We invite you to create an art piece that connects or responds to one of these paintings, or one of the subparts of this storyline. 
• The artwork you submit must be portable and easily moved. The labyrinth exhibition will travel throughout the country for a season.
Application process: Submitted artwork and/or art idea proposals will be received now until September 30,2020. We ask for clear, high quality photos of the artwork to be sent via email as well as a written description of the work, along with size and medium. Please send your submissions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  

For musicians:

We’re looking for composers to create musical pieces inspired by the Ghent Altarpiece, and how the ancient biblical story, retold in this painting over 600 years ago, speaks to us today. These recorded pieces will set the atmosphere for the exhibition, played back through a sound installation that guides visitors through the labyrinth. We’re also looking for compositions for live performance outside the exhibition. These unique performances will interact with the themes of the Ghent Altarpiece and have the scope to incorporate other artistic disciplines such as dance. Lyrical content in these pieces will be welcomed.

God’s story transcends history, and we want to allude to that as we combine instrumental and compositional elements from different eras and cultures. No matter what genres you work in - whether EDM, hip hop, choral, orchestral, pop, flamenco, rock, avant-garde, sound collage, folk, metal, musical theatre, reggae, jazz - we’d especially love to work together. If you’re excited about collaboration between composers and musicians across genres and interested in the challenge of making something uniquely new, then we’d love for you to join us.
