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.

The talents shared and experiences at MAW left me feeling inspired and hopeful! And who doesn’t love a good hymn sing?

During the weekend participants have the opportunity to see and listen to amazing artists, gain insights into the creative process, renew friendships and make new connections.

The weekend is a great weekend to explore and learn about artists and their work in an intimate setting. You really learn about the deep meanings associated with their work.
