CUP Fellowships are value-centred creative spaces, the times and places when a group of people commit to meeting one another, share their art-in-progress, learn from one another, and prayerfully engage the Word of God in order to mature in their gifts and calling and thereby to join God in God's creative mission in the world with and for the sake of others.
All people are creative irrespective of gender, caste, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, national identity, or intellectual ability.
All people are creative--equally, in the image of the Creator.
Creativity is more than a psychometric evaluation of human potential; it is more than innovation, coming up with new ideas or solutions. It's not "icing on the cake."
To be creative is, in essence, to be human.
The birthplace for creativity is community.
No diversity, no creativity. No creativity, no community.
