Morphē is a national network of arts graduates and emergent artists.

What we doWhy we do itHow we do itWho we are

Morphē provides support and resources to Christian graduates and emergent artists to work with integrity in their creative practices – making a difference in the world of contemporary art.

We believe art is an essential part of what it means to be fully human. We have a vision for artists of faith to become a dynamic and transformative presence in today’s world of art.

We believe art—

As an organisation we assent to the Nicene Creed as our document of Christian faith, but our activities are open to anyone regardless of religious belief.

We act out the following values—

Hospitality

We welcome artists of all faiths and none

Community

We seek to nurture community through meetings and shared meals

Collaboration

We often work in partnerships with other (Christian and non-Christian) organisations

Professionality

We focus on arts graduates and young professionals

Prophetic faithfulness

We challenge art practices that put fame or profit over justice and respect for people as created in the image of God
