The Social Artistry Experience: Keys to creative inspiration for your work and your community. The workshop is intended to provide the experiential foundation so valuable to social artists, and serves as a prerequisite for Train the Trainer Social Artistry programs such as the annual training held in Colquitt, Georgia. This program is enriched by blending the basic Social Artistry training with the advanced skills of this Ashland-based faculty: Peggy Rubin, Elizabeth Austin, Trish Broersma, and Lisa Nelson. An additional enhancement is the atmosphere of possibility provided by Ashland, Oregon itself, home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and many other rich features of art, community, and environmental sustainability and resilience. Attending this workshop will be a dazzling and heart-enriching experience of crossing the threshold into the world of Social Artistry.

SOCIAL ARTISTRY SUMMIT
August 8 (8PM) to August 11 (6PM) Ashland Community Center
$150 in advance, $160 at the door
The field of Social Artistry, created by Jean Houston, continues to expand in exciting directions, deepening its roots in different parts of the United States, Nepal, Bangladesh, Zambia, Argentina, China, and adding richness to a variety of professions, including education, sustainability and perma-culture, and the use of the arts as a way to build communities.
During this exciting annual program, social artists come from all over to share their work, their ideas, and their burning questions with each other in the Summit. There will be portions of the program in which we meet in sessions to discuss what is next and what is needed in supporting this important work. We will also celebrate with performances of music, storytelling, and poetry reading, and jokes, so bring all your talents!
