Mission Statement


Poetry, Music, Theater, Art, Dialogue, Reaction – The Bible is a powerful resource for creativity. Spark and Echo Arts (formerly Bible Confrontatie) provides a safe place for creative expression, inviting artists, thinkers and creative people from diverse backgrounds to react to the Bible using their talents. The result is a multi-disciplinary Illuminated Bible; a living body of challenging work that captures the richness of Biblical text and imagery, stimulating a refreshing type of artistic dialogue. We develop, inspire and commission original art for practical use and public enjoyment, offering an expansive online collection, exciting live performances, and interactive workshops. We nurture creative expression that impacts our current world, with an honest approach that ripples through our community, that all involved might appreciate their worth, the timeless relevance of the Bible, and the profound value of the people around them.

Description


Spark and Echo (formerly Bible Confrontatie) is an interactive multi-disciplinary "illumination" of the Bible for a new generation. Collaborating with visual and performing artists from New York City and beyond, we are illuminating every passage of the Bible with visual art, music, theater, poetry, and mixed media. The works are available online and at live events. Your work could be a part of this project. If you find a passage or a piece of art on the site that sparks a strong emotional response, use your creative talents and Submit an Artistic Reaction. Rather than focusing on verbal discussion, we are fostering a new culture of artistic dialogue that generates fascinating works of art while exploring the Bible. This website is only part of the project. We also host live events, concerts and workshops featuring talented artists and focusing on a refreshing exploration of the intersection between faith, art and culture. If you are an emerging artist, we not only challenge you to incorporate the Bible into your work, we also offer you resources to better express yourself and a community to showcase your work. Get involved by exploring the site, attending an Event, or submitting a work in response to a Bible passage or artwork featured on the site. Contact Us if you have questions, ideas or ways we can be of service to you. Individual artists and creators of the work on this site hold the copyrights for their own work. If you are interested in using their work you should seek permission from the artist. Contact Us and we will gladly help you with that process. Portions of some works are available for download as indicated. If you use something please consider a tax-deductible donation. Spark and Echo Arts is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization registered under our legal name Bible Confrontatie Inc.
