Will tomorrow’s Church be inspired “further up and further in” by a new generation of great artists?
It's up to you.
Member artists are the creators of today’s Church. Poets, musicians, painters, filmmakers, graphic designers, and more. The vision of our embryonic Artists Guild is to provide those artists with the spiritual, technical, artistic, and social resources to grow and to touch lives.
We don’t have a fixed set of requirements, but we’re generally looking for people who have:
- A commitment to excellence, and the betterment of their craft (ineffective for Jesus is still ineffective).
- A belief that good art, whether it explores joy and exhilaration or darkness and pain, is a window into truth, beauty, and ultimately, God.
- A desire to improve the arts scene in Colorado Springs, and by extension the health of the Church, its members, and the unchurched.
- Live on the Colorado front range (our meetings are usually in northern Colorado Springs).
- Are 21 or over in age.
As a member artist, you will enjoy:
An Expanded Audience
Help from the Anselm Society’s network in promoting your art (through concert or other show opportunities, marketing of your performance or display, etc.)
Invitations to members-only events, like dinners with out-of-town speakers, artist pub nights, writers’ workshops, art shows, and some VIP events
Members-only support groups, seminars, and other opportunities to help them navigate the world of the artist (and that other world that keeps butting in on it)
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!
Apply to become an Anselm Society member artist!
If you are accepted, membership dues are $10/month or $100/year per person, or $20/mo or $200/year per group (e.g. a band). Your dues pay for all the cool members-only events, like workshops, speaker fees, room reservations, etc. See what's coming up this year!
