Christian World Arts Festival: Stage and Film

Are you a Christian artist who’s looking to improve your skills and expand your connections in the world of film or stage? Then sign up for the inaugural Christian World Arts Festival: Stage and Film on March 2–4, 2023, at Museum of the Bible.

The Academy of Arts, which includes the Logos Theatre, is offering this one-of-a-kind festival to inspire, encourage, and develop Christian artists working in media and the performing arts. Masterclasses on multiple subjects—such as script writing, vocal acting, directing, and building an arts program—for high school and college students and professionals. Artists are also encouraged to submit their own work for consideration in several categories, with the winner taking home a special award. Plus, your registration includes a museum pass so you can explore the Bible’s transformative power through our award-winning exhibits and a complimentary ticket to a performance of C. S. Lewis’s The Horse and His Boy by the Logos Theatre.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to deepen your skills in the arts and become part of the next generation of Christian artists. You can learn more at the Christian World Arts Festival homepage or use the button below to register today.
