There are a million conferences every year (don’t check my math), but few are designed for Christians who work in the creative sector.
It makes sense: What creative wants to spend three days straight in lectures? You can probably think of other ways to spend that time—like writing a new song, sculpting a piece, or brainstorming a fun way to make the gospel visible in your craft.
But—hear me out on this one—what if you could go to a conference where everyone around you felt the same way? Could there really be a conference that you leave feeling refreshed and eager to continue your work?
Enter the Canvas Conference, coming to Santa Ana, CA, on August 30–31.
This one-of-a-kind conference is run by Humble Beast, and it aims to “build bridges between the artist and the theologian by inviting God to take center stage in every human endeavor.” 1This year’s theme is “Heavens Below, ” walking through how art and creativity are meant to testify to God’s forever promises today.
Our own Micah Ellis and Eleazar Ruiz are speaking at the conference, teaching on “The Making of Meaning” and “The Age of Anxiety: The Cost of Recovery,” respectively.
Other speakers include Paul David Tripp, Brett McCracken (senior editor at The Gospel Coalition), Trillia Newbell, Sho Baraka, and many others.
The conference ends with a music festival featuring The Gray Havens, Antoine Bradford, Beautiful Eulogy, Propaganda, and more.
