We are excited to gather with other artists from around the world to pray and consider together what it is for our lives and art to be a light in today's culture. You will find information below on the trip and how you are able to support an artist. Our individual and collective stories are deeply impacted by the generosity of those that make this global church building experience possible. We are so grateful.

We leave Nashville on Monday June 18, arriving in Paris the following day. This will give us a day to explore Paris and prepare for the conference that begins on Wednesday June 20 in the afternoon.
The Inspiration Conference is an initiative of The Foundry artist collective. We have been partnering with this community for the last two years on our JAC European pilgrimages. At the conference there will be:
1. Space for us to build friendships with artists from all over the world as we consider what it is to have our lives and art restoring the culture in which we live.
2. Time spent in meaningful locations across the city to pray and hear God in unexpected ways.
3. A French indie music Festival concert inside a cathedral at the very center of the city. On the next day we mingle with the Parisian crowd during the free yearly festival "Fête de la musique".
4. Visits to different places that hold an importance in the history of the arts: churches, gardens, museums, art galleries, bars and restaurants.
