inSpire is a weekend of interaction, music, art, and more that focuses on using the arts to communicate God’s message of hope and healing to our community and world. It is a gathering of Adventist creatives open to all and begins on Friday evening and runs through Sunday morning with an outdoor activity. If you are an Adventist creative (artist, musician, photographer, poet, songwriter, videographer and/or writer, etc.), we invite you to join us for this unique and transformative experience.
Event Theme: Here by Design
Anyone may attend, with or without registration, but the low registration fee includes some pretty good perks (an inSpire T-shirt, Sabbath meal, and gift-bag more than offsets the cost).
Early Registration – Now through Dec. 5, 2022. In addition to the event (which is free to all), registration includes a pen, name tag, T-shirt, Sabbath meal, note pad, and the option to submit two photos to the “Here by Design” art project. The registration fee is $10 per person.
