"We are all patrons": how artists receive patronage in support of their work for the common good
Many artists feel alone and under-supported to the detriment of both themselves and their communities. The purpose of this study was to explore how artists receive support for their work through patronage. This study focused on three areas of Christian theological heritage: common grace, imago Dei, and patronage. The study followed a qualitative research design relying on semi structured interviews of artists working for the common good. The study identified three potential areas of support: material support, relational support, and intellectual support. By recognizing and leveraging its resources, the church could provide patronage in support of artists working for the common good.
