Art4Dieu in collaboration with Alisha Ruiss present CREATED / CRÉÉS – a bilingual retreat for adult Christian artists and writers who are seeking to deepen their understanding of their creative and baptismal calls within the world.
During this week-end, participants are invited to engage in an experience of embodied reflection on the meaning of their artistic calling through movement, music, theatre and writing, with the purpose of deepening their understanding of themselves as witnesses to the Gospel created in the image of God. Through prayer, artistic exercises, personal and group reflection, we seek to provide spiritual formation, foster meaningful relationships and solidarity amongst Christian artists, and spark inspiration that will bear fruit in their creative endeavours and spiritual lives.
