The European Arts Institute (EAI) is in the process of being launched. The goal is to identify, network, include, and further empower existing Christian-based mentoring and arts training opportunities currently being offered across the European continent.
This educational and training network will provide an inspiring and encouraging growth environment for emerging and career artists; cast a vision for the significant role of the arts whether in mission, the church, the academy, or in the broader culture; foster artistic expression informed by a Biblical worldview, and operate from common core values and standards.
