            MAKE_! (from InterVarsity Canada) is a monthly gathering space for artists of any discipline – visual, word, performing, etc. – to get together, share a meal, reflect on questions of life + faith and, of course, make art.
            ivmakegta.wixsite.com/make

            In 2020, MAKE_! participants have engaged the themes of Displacement and Belonging, discussing it’s relationship to faith, and creating art pieces to be exhibited as a group show. Due to COVID-19 lockdowns, this showcase was put on pause. However, we are pleased that this exhibit will now be hosted virtually in April 2021, in a unique digital experience, with image, video, and audio components.

            Multiple submissions accepted.
            Submissions also accepted from non-MAKE_! participants of any faith background.
