With a strong commitment to the intersection of faith and the arts, Cairn University is pleased to announce a publishing partnership with The Curator. The Curator is an online magazine initiated in 2008 as an International Arts Movement (IAM) web publication. The founder of IAM is artist Makoto Fujimura, friend of the University and 2014 Spring Commencement speaker.
The Curator publishes essays, poetry, reviews, quotations, image galleries, videos, and other media that evaluate, reflect, and respond to contemporary culture. Contributing artists and writers explore various aspects of culture in order to create a “world that ought to be” and to inspire its readers to engage deeply with culture that enriches life and broadens human experience. By celebrating the best of new art, music, film and books, and capturing the daily beauty through poetry and creative nonfiction, The Curator seeks to embody truth, goodness, and beauty.
As a publishing partner of The Curator, Cairn University faculty, staff, and students will contribute regularly to the magazine. Dr. Brian Toews, provost, will help shape the editorial scheme of the magazine as a member of the Editorial Board and suggest curatorial themes, topics, and areas of coverage. The magazine will be a public place to share and publish work that engages with contemporary culture in light of a biblical worldview.
Contributing writers will stem from administration, the provost office, and the various schools and departments of the University, as well as from undergraduate and graduate students in various programs of study.
The opinions presented in The Curator do not necessarily reflect the viewpoint of Cairn University.
