ABOUT US

A Few Words

The Orthodox Arts Festival is an online event devoted to Orthodox Ideals.

Our goal is straightforward.

To provide possibilities for all Christian Artists, as well as to share their combined creativity

and inspiration with the rest of the world.
Our Inspirational sparks are as different as our places of origin, yet we are bonded by our shared

love of Orthodoxy and the Arts.
Our Advisory board is a collection of Orthodox Christians & inspired dreamers, who are willing to take chances

and reach out into the unknown in order to serve God and our neighbours.
We chose to do so by utilising available technology to dismantle the physical constraints associated

with traditional venue-based events.
To reach the widest possible audience, we utilise cutting-edge technology,

such as exhibits held on Virtual Reality Platforms, Podcasts etc.
Visual Arts, Film, Music, Chanting and Literature are the fields represented during the Festival.

All of the works are based on Orthodox Christian Ideas, Culture, and Values.
Many people contributed to the realisation of this event, with active backgrounds in Fine Art Curating, Filmmaking, Iconography, IT, Architecture, PR, Business & Marketing Strategy, Vision & Leadership,

and all with experience in their respective disciplines.

We appreciate their assistance.
