Twenty-fifth Annual National Conference
Created for Creativity:
Music, Culture and Faith
October 9 - 11, 2015
|The 25th Annual LFP National Conference, Created for Creativity: Music, Culture and Faith, will take place October 9 through 11 at Belmont University in Nashville. You will have the chance to hear how Belmont’s signature programs in music, songwriting, religion and the arts, and music business embody our commitment to embedding strong Christian character in all that we do.
You will be invited during the breakout sessions to talk with your colleagues about ways the Christian intellectual and artistic traditions inform signature programs at your institutions.
|Our hope is to encourage conversations in which we can learn from one another about ways to engage with discipline-specific Christian content in courses and programming.
Speakers will include : Steve Guthrie, formerly of the St. Andrews Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts, founding director of the Belmont Religion & the Arts Program, and author of several books including Faithful Performances: Artistry , Embodiment, and the Enactment of Christian Identity;
|William Powell, Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities at Auburn University, who has conducted at Carnegie Hall, the National Cathedral and the Kennedy Center; Ginny Owens, ASCAP and Dove Award-winning songwriter and performer; and Gordon Kennedy, recipient of multiple Grammy Awards and internationally acclaimed songwriter. In addition, you will have a chance to see two biblically-themed art exhibits, as well as hear students from our School of Music.
Nashville is known as Music City, so we have left time on both Friday and Saturday nights for you to sample live music at one or more of the many downtown music venues.
The deadline for registration is August 31, 2015. Registration is now open. To register, visit Belmont University's conference website!
