Artists in Community

Date recorded: 17 May 2021 | Speaker: Stephen Thrall | Event: ELF Artists Network


Western culture leads us to believe that artists work best as isolated, creative individuals. Scripture tells us, however, that God made all humans to fit naturally into a community. Creative people have unique skills and abilities which the whole community can benefit from. A healthy community is also a safe place to learn and grow in our areas of weakness. For artists to work collaboratively in community requires love, humility, and a willingness to remain a learner. The combined creative assets of an artistic community can open many new doors and provides opportunities of societal engagement on a much greater scale than would be possible for individuals.
