Feedback past events...

Mennonite Arts Weekend refreshed my appreciation for the variety of artists within our collective tradition. The weekend inspired and stimulated me in ways that go well beyond simple attendance at an event. I was reminded of the many connections linking faith and friends, and interests and vocations. I'm excited for what the next event holds.
