The Farm is a series of gatherings presented by the Journey Arts Collective for college students and young adults. We desire to cultivate an environment that allows you to connect with others in the arts and its associated industries. We hope to see each person responding to their skills and passions in the freedom of their true identity. We find our voice when we find His voice. Ultimately we want to be a ‘collective’ that responds to our God designed life.
The Farm is free and open to all young adults.
We welcome you to visit us on a night we're gathering and explore. If you're then interested to get involved in the program and share your art you can register to be a part of it.

The Farm program is divided into four quarters, each with a different area of focus. These include faith, identity, purpose and action. When you do the program you are given a small group led by facilitators and mentors working in an artistic field. There will be 6 to 8 people in your group. To create stability and momentum you will have the same people in your group for the duration of each quarter. Our gatherings are always infused with creativity and we welcome your input.
As each topic begins we make a commitment to one another to attend all the gatherings for that quarter (made up of 5 gatherings). Our time together focuses on facilitated conversation as we explore the content that has been given. We aim to see everyone adding to the conversation in a balanced way. All this helps to create safety for the village. We will also have a village to welcome anyone who wants to attend on any given night.
We begin a new quarter with 'art and story' night. This is an opportunity to celebrate the journey so far as we invite you to share your artistry and what you've been experiencing at The Farm. We encourage you to invite your friends. There's also a preview for the topic ahead and the invitation to opt in. If you no longer want to be part of the program you can also opt out. Friends are welcome to join your village at the start of a new quarter (space permitting).
