Upper House believes that the arts are doxological (celebrating God’s person and work) and re-creational (contributing significantly to human flourishing). Since rich and purpose-filled aesthetic experiences are essential to personal, social, and spiritual wellbeing, we curate innovative conferences, learning cohorts, and practical workshops to encourage artists at every level and to introduce our community to their work. Increasingly, artists in Madison’s Christian community view Upper House as a strong partner and ally, even a spiritual home.

To strengthen your journey of faith and art, consider the following arts conference, literary journal, and seminary program as a starting point.
