Our passion at KA is to see God’s Kingdom come in the nations in and through the arts via prayer, festivals, conferences, equipping, media & more.
Kingdom Arts conference was spearheaded from 2007 by Marcia Weekes of Praise Academy of Dance Barbados and has been led by Islandworship since 2011. With a strong Caribbean pulse, KA over the years has attracted participants from Guyana, Antigua, Trinidad and Jamaica, strengthening regional bonds and contributing to the development of the artists. Offering a wide range of workshops in multiple genres of the arts, KA became a go-to Festival and conference primarily for Christian youth to enhance and showcase their skills.
In 2020 the Lord has instructed us to zero in our focus to one of the core elements of why we exist—equipping creatives to impact their world with the good news of the kingdom.
To achieve this, we will be directing our efforts towards releasing content that helps to inspire, stokes the fire, and helps channel creatives to achieve their mandate.
This is vitally important because we sense from the Lord this next decade will be one of the most culture-shaping eras in history. The arts are at the center of this, and a lot is at stake.
As we place our focus on this mandate it means we will not be hosting a KA Festival 2020. While this may be disappointing for many in our community, we only desire to follow and obey where God leads. We eagerly look forward to running together with you in 2020 and anticipate your continued support!
