Artist, educator, and arts & culture leader from Australia. 
Jo Darby is passionate about transformative arts experiences, and arts as a catalyst for change – essential for cultivating vibrant, healthy, equitable communities. Jo has a background in visual arts/studies of religion teaching, and holds a Master of Business (Arts and Cultural Management). In addition to her own studio practice and lecturing undergraduate History and Theory of Art, Jo is an experienced GLAM sector professional, previously working in education engagement for museums and galleries, and now in UX research and design for an academic library with a focus on placemaking.  A sought after speaker at conferences and events across Australia, New Zealand the US,  and a featured guest on several podcasts, Jo presents regularly on intersections of creativity, faith, and social justice. She has contributed to many publications, including co-editing ‘Manifest: Our call to Faithful Creativity’ and her first illustrated children's book ’the Gardener’ (authored by Shell-sea Ellem) was launched last year. Jo and her husband Leighton founded ’The Well’ 10 years ago in Newcastle, New South Wales, and continue to lead this thriving creative faith community.
SCOTT ERICKSON
Artist, author, performance speaker, and creative curate who mixes autobiography, mythology, and aesthetics to create art and moments that speak to our deepest experiences.
Using his passion and commitment to craft, Scott has been a working artist for over a decade, and has had his work appear on CNN, National Geographic, and various magazines, newspaper outlets, and book covers.As a speaker, Scott brings his training as an educator and his experience as a visual communicator to all of his presentations. His goal is to bring something for his “A.D.D. brothers and sisters out there”… making sure every speech is thoughtful, entertaining, wondrous, and filled with visual elements and live creating.
He is the writer and performer of two one man shows. Wrestling with his own professional burnout and clinical depression, “We Are Not Troubled Guests” is a performance story-telling piece in which he navigates the surprising gift of an existential crisis.
His current show, "Say Yes: A Liturgy of Not Giving Up On Yourself”, juxtaposes story-teaching, participation, humor, and image curation as Scott walks us through the very personal and universal conversation about the death of a dream and the overwhelming voice of Giving Up in our lives.
He is the co-author of Prayer: Forty Days of Practice and May It Be So, the author of Honest Advent and Say Yes, a Spiritual Director to brave women and men, and a professional dishwasher for his food blogging wife.
Scott lives in Vancouver, WA and is most loved by his wife Holly and his children Anders, Elsa, and Jones.
