An Introduction

International Arts Movement, Inc. (IAM) is a catalyst arts organization committed to cultural and spiritual renewal. Its programs support individual artists in their work and embrace the entire arts community. IAM is active in Tokyo and New York City, with affiliations in Orlando, Los Angeles, and London. Its vision: a fusion of creativity and faith that expresses and illustrates God's intimate and merciful identity in the world.

IAM was first conceived when its founder, Makoto Fujimura, traveled to the Philippines to organize an exhibit by Christian artists. An established artist - with his own newborn faith in Christ - Fujimura was exhibiting in Tokyo at the time. Moved by these experiences, Fujimura went on to publish "Wouldest Thou Love...:" a personal record of an artist's journey to faith. This publication had a wide and lasting impact; it was later quoted in major arts magazines and museum exhibits. Most gratifyingly, it had a very real personal impact on the lives of many artists, curators and critics in Japan and in New York. IAM grew out of this experience with a vision to unite leaders who share the passion for creativity and Christ. We want to understand our "stories" together as God knits us together.
