from July 29 – August 2: It’s a great and beautiful location.

You are invited. Till may  30: … 15% discount for early booking.

Are you creative? Are you interested in Music, Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre, or any other form of art? Are you yearning to learn? Are you keen on meeting other people with the same vision? Are you open and willing to share? Above all, are you looking for inspiration and renewal?

If so, then the annual Christian Artists Seminar is the place to be. You are warmly invited to join us. Art lovers, artists, teachers and speakers gather from all over Europe for a very inspiring week in beautiful surroundings.

At the beginning of the programme are stimulating and engaging plenary meetings in which speakers share about the latest developments where art meets faith with an emphasis on real artists making a living doing real work in the real world.  1½ plenum days for these are followed by 2 days of workshops with talented professionals (you can choose out of 70 different workshops). In the evenings you will attend 4 concerts/performances, watching and listening to more than 35 artists. Be ready to open your mind and be inspired! Be ready to improve technically. Be readyto grow spiritually. Be ready to develop your vision for life as an artist! There are possibilities for evaluation of your talent. You will receive a certificate based on the European Credit Point system.

CA prepares you for personal, local and (inter)national outreach! The BONUS is that you get plenty of opportunities to get to know each other, to learn from each other, and to ask questions of anybody. As so many participants have said after their first week: “it feels like finally coming home!”

Testimonials:Thanks to CA I got a lot of new work and performances around Europe and Africa, Arthur Pirenne, NL.  CA opened a new world for me. I cried at my first CA, how beautiful and inspiring it was, Elly Zuiderveld, Nl.  What struck me was the combination of hard and good work during the day and amazing performances during the evening, Ward Roofthooft, Belgium.  It is so refreshing to be at CA, Marta Jakobovits, Romania. All people at CA enrich my horizon, and I benefit from that the whole year, Miriam Hofmann, Germany. Great friendships come from CA, such important contributions to my own life, Peter Smith, UK. Amazing collaborations helping me in my art form, Anlo Piquet, France. It’s coming home! Together gloryfying God, Didi Companjen, NL.  It has so much broadened my mind and made friends for life, Jean Pierre Rudolph, France. The creative networking that takes place is invaluable, Jill Ford, UK. In one word, CA has meant “inspiration”  – from a reawakening of creativity, a renewal of vision, a sense of community and networking, Dale Chappell, Portugal. We share our basic Christian faith and this makes it possible to be open and transparent: we are family. Every time after the conference I went back home inspired and with new ideas, plans, refilled with energy and love for my work, Heike Wetzel, Germany. I can even say it’s the place where you have to be yourself if you want to take the most of it all and make an impact on your daily life once back home, Claire Kowalcsyk, France. Christian Artists is like heaven for me once a year, a place where I can feel at home, where I am not a stranger, where I feel welcomed, loved and understood. I can do, see and hear wonderful things, Yoshiko Romppel, Germany. To discover doing my (crafts)work not only by head and hand but more and more also by heart, and the possibility to recognize and share these things feels like a warm bath, Corine Kraak, NL.
