With what voice should we speak in today's culture?

What does it mean to say that you are in the business of Christian communication, content making, film, media, or the arts? And what impact do you hope it will have on the world?

At CONNECT22 you will join engaging and interactive conversation sessions in-person and online as we explore these questions and more through three particular lenses: truth, goodness and beauty.

We will explore the substance of truth and seek to determine what makes something 'good' or virtuous in light of the Christian story. We will also interrogate the various expressions of this through the lenses of beauty and hope.

CMAA has engaged AVENIR Leadership Institute to lead us in exploring a theology of Christian communication with special focus on media and art. It is our hope that you will join us as together we discuss, process and return to our organisations better equipped to serve the audiences we engage.

This is a not to be missed in-person event, and it’s the first time we will have gathered since 2019! Having said that, we have learnt a thing or two during the past season, so for those that want to include their wider team who cannot make it in-person, a ticketed online option is now available.
