The Culture House started with a belief that artists shape our culture — and that every child is created by God uniquely, with a treasure of untold potential. In that spirit, artistic training provided to children is an investment not only in the lives of each student, but in the future of our society

Matc HeadshotMat Carson

director of Inspiro Arts Alliance, a ministry of OM International.

Originating from Montreal, Canada, Mat Carson began serving with OM in 1999 by traveling for three

years throughout North Africa and the Middle East. He has since helped pioneer arts ministry in OM and

currently directs Inspiro Arts Alliance. He lives happily in the forest outside Atlanta, USA with his wife

and two children.


Art is broadly powerful because it is integral to every culture around the world. And yet, the role

and interpretation of art is so very different from community to community. When an artist brings

art cross-culturally, how can it be done in a way that brings dignity and blessing, while avoiding

confusion, offence or worse?  Bridging the cultural gap well is critical to sharing the gospel –

especially when doing so through art, since it is at the heart of culture.

At Inspiro Arts Alliance, we believe you were specially made to help fulfill God’s purposes.

Sometimes people with artistic talent do not feel they fit within traditional mission contexts. But

Inspiro has helped establish and support artists on mission in a variety of settings around the

world. We love helping artists like you find your place, be equipped and connected to thrive in

God’s work among the world’s least reached.

He will discuss The Four Bridges | Crossing the Cultural Gap through Art. Whether you are crossing the street or an ocean, the four bridges are a helpful way to thoughtfully engage cross-culturally through the arts
