THE DESIGN CHALLENGE
How to create art that would support the themes of the Conference and draw people in through their senses to experience the ideas that were being presented in a meaningful and life changing way.
Christa created 7 large tent-like art pieces, one for each of the regions where members of the organization serve. This established a visual context for the conference, and provided places for reflection and prayer. Each participant left with a folded triangle, lit from inside, carrying a reminder of the ideas and internal changes that happened during conference.
Jonathan wrote a song for each of the regions. One song “Love Take Me Home” particularly connected with the group, and a number of people told us they got emotional because the songs described their situation and dreams/struggles.
“I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed the art until it was gone. I feel now like there is something missing or somehow wrong or out of place. It really helped me engage in a much more multifaceted way.”
