PUBLIC EVENTS

The Anselm Society is named after the archbishop of Canterbury (c. 1093) who coined the phrase, “Faith seeking understanding.” It exists to revive the ancient quest of Christians to reflect the nature of the Creator through the creation of beautiful things that inspire the human imagination to see Him the clearer.

We think the place to start is by exploring the minds and motivations of the men and women, past and present, who devote their creative genius to the exploration and inspiration of truth and beauty. Our public events include:

  • Our flagship lecture series, where local, national, and international speakers help illuminate our imaginations (past speakers have included Michael Ward, Peter Leithart, Malcolm Guite).
  • The WeLL, a concert series that brings local and out-of-state artists together to make quality, soul-stirring music--not stuff that's just a faded rip-off of '90s pop.
  • Art shows and other special events in partnership with local galleries and pubs.

ANSELM PATRON PROGRAM

Patrons are the supporters of the arts. In the days when the Church was creating the most beautiful art in the world, many of its artists relied on patrons for financial support, housing, career advancement, and more.

Back then, patrons had to be rich—but no longer. The Anselm Society is becoming a next-generation network in support of great art, and everyone can be a part of it.

Patrons enjoy:

  • Invitations to members-only events
  • Opportunities to hobnob with artists
  • Access to exclusive online content
  • Connection with a growing community united by a shared passion

Artist Program


Connecting, inspiring, and empowering the next generation of creators.

The Anselm Society has two kinds of members: artists and patrons. Both help the Society by supporting it in various ways according to their abilities. Artists are the creators of today’s Church--poets, musicians, painters, filmmakers, graphic designers, and more. In addition to invitations to members-only events, like dinners with out-of-town speakers or art shows, member artists also enjoy:

SUPPORT

Help from the Anselm Society’s network in promoting their art (through concert or other show opportunities, marketing of their performance or display, etc.).

CONNECTION

Connections with other members, as well as mentoring opportunities (to learn or to teach) so that iron sharpens iron and you can hone your craft!

DISCIPLESHIP

Seminars, discussions, theological training, and other opportunities to help you navigate the world of the artist (and that other world that keeps butting in on it).
