SHINE IS...

AMTC's SHINE Tour is a 3-day, invitation-only event. 2017's upcoming events are Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Orlando. 

If you apply, and you are invited to attend SHINE, you get:

  • Screen and stage time in front of mainstream and Christian VIPs working every day in film, fashion, music and theatre
  • Seminars and workshops by the VIPs
  • 1-on-1 interviews with the agents, managers casting directors and music industry professionals in attendance

If you're a performer wondering how to take your talent to the world and maintain your focus on God, The SHINE Tour makes it possible.

 

LIVE YOUR CALLING

It's your time. Get in the field. Make your dreams a reality. Multiply the gifts and talents God gave you. 

VIP SEMINARS

VIP workshops, seminars, panel discussions. Insider information and contacts with the pros. By SHINE's end, you'll know more than most wanna-be performers pounding the streets in Hollywood or New York.

FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHER CHRISTIAN PERFORMERS

At the SHINE Conference, you'll meet people like you: performers with the faith and courage to walk out their calling. SHINE is a family bringing encouragement, safety and accountability. Lifelong friends are made. "I've finally found my people!" (Lyndsay, AMTC Grad)
