Every few years, those with a passion for arts in missions gather at GCAMM (Global Consultation on Arts and Music in Missions). Attendees are encouraged through plenary and breakout sessions and the joy of being together with other like-minded followers of Jesus. This year, GCAMM was held in July and focused on the theme of “Discipling Faithful Worshipers Through the Arts.” Several of our staff and Alliance members were able to attend, and we caught up with them to hear what they learned and experienced.
Our brains are incredibly intricate organs. From controlling our physical bodies to interpreting non-physical stimuli, the inner workings of the brain remind us that we are, indeed, fearfully and wonderfully made by God (Psalm 139:14). Artist Geinene Carson has been putting colour and visuals to this truth with her artwork for the past several years, researching and painting neurons. Last month, an exhibition of her work opened at Gallery 1740 in Atlanta*. The exhibition is titled The Colour of Thought and is a body of artwork meant to provide visual encouragement and gentle accountability towards the growing discussion of mental and emotional well-being.
In late August of last year, Stephanie, on staff with Inspiro, traveled to Uganda to help record the songs of a local artist. Read more about the project below!
