Music: From the beginning, music has been a central gathering point for the Rabbit Room community. Whether through live events like the Local Show, new releases from favorite artists, or the discovery of fresh new talent, we believe music brings people together.

Story: Through books, movies, theater, and other media, the magic of storytelling has the power to shape not only our minds, but the world around us. And story, like music, has the kind of magic that not only draws people closer to one another, but draws them further up and further into the great Story.

Art: Painting, gardening, pottery, woodcraft, parenting, cooking--whenever we spend our energy in creative action, art is the result. And it's these creative acts, large and small, that remind us we are ourselves the work of a Creator. Art is sacramental, pointing us toward the Truth present in every atom of Creation.

The Rabbit Room was conceived as an experiment in creative community. After author/singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson's first visit to the Oxford home of C. S. Lewis, he returned to Nashville with a conviction that community nourishes good and lasting work. The Rabbit Room, the name of the back room of the pub where the Oxford Inklings (including Lewis, Tolkien, and Charles Williams) shared their stories, began as a simple blog of contributing authors, songwriters, artists, and pastors.

Over the years, with the help of Andrew's brother, author A. S. "Pete" Peterson, as well as encouragement from the loyal Rabbit Room contributors and readers, the Rabbit Room has grown to include podcasts, a thriving music and book store, Rabbit Room Press, a yearly conference called Hutchmoot, The Local Show, and an office in a 150-year-old farmhouse called North Wind Manor.
