The mission of FOTA is, therefore, to enlighten and exhort the gentle art and science of free exercise of the arts to bring the lost back home and to reinforce those in by building bridges between Christian faith and Christian artists, friends of Christian arts, organizations and others worldwide, developing local-global connections and innovative ways of sharing knowledge, information and skills through immersion in both Western and non-western traditions, promoting cross-cultural dialogues and tolerance of free exercise of the arts.
