Plenary (Keynote)

Kyle Mann is a keynote speaker at this year’s conference. He will be speaking about the importance and influence of art in response to culture.

C. S. Lewis wrote in The Abolition of Man that “You can’t go on ‘seeing through’ things forever. The whole point of seeing through something is to see something through it.” … We’re trying to deconstruct things to get people to see something else. … We have a hope that goes beyond this world, and we want to point that out. That is where we see satire fitting into a biblical worldview. … Let’s communicate truth to a culture that many times does not believe in an objective, universal truth any longer. — Kyle Mann, Interview with The Atlantic

Humor can get in under the door while seriousness is still fumbling at the handle. — G.K. Chesterton
