- freedom - in Greek, 'to be healed, rescued, set free by God'
- creativity - in Japanese, 'innovation and creativity'.
- art that gives hope, frees, inspires.
Sozo is an institute for the creation and expression of a variety of art media which build up people, not tear down, which gives hope, gives solutions, and inspires action.
Sozo Institute of The Arts is not a religious organization, but we are motivated by a core set of simple values; love God, love people, make a difference. These set the tone and atmosphere in Sozo.
A variety of events and activities are hosted by the Institute in the arts as well as science, politics, global issues, business and economic development and humanitarian aid.
Sozo is underwritten by Keystone Church & Ministries, Inc.
