As a collective, we long to create safe, intimate, and redemptive spaces for the soul to heal, restore, and flourish in community with trusted companions. One of the primary ways we do this is through Villages. Here we are invited into places of authenticity and vulnerability as we explore and experience formation, respond to our creativity and serve one another.
Our current series is called 'In Motion'. These gatherings are a supportive 'check-in' as we each take our next creative step. It could be something we are already working on or an artistic endeavor we want to begin. Could be something we need to do for our clientele/audience or a creative undertaking for our own enjoyment (or both). Throughout the series we'll have different artists and entrepreneurs share their experience and art with us as we tackle some practical topics and spiritual formation questions that specifically relate to this part of our lives. It's a time to grow as we support one another in the celebrations and the struggles of the artistic journey and life in Nashville. To find understanding and spiritual grounding in a community of creative explorers.
Come — let’s keep creating the Journey Arts Collective together!

Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
The series will last 10 gatherings (2 a month over 5 months). The first gathering is an introduction night for you to hear what we'll be doing and explore whether you want to participate. At the second gathering we'll officially begin the series. We meet in the main space with our small groups (what we call villages) sitting at round tables for discussion.
To create stability and momentum for a village we keep the same people in a group and making a commitment to one another to attend until the topics completion. There will be 6 to 8 people in a village. We welcome new people to join us at any stage in a series. We will place you in a new village.
At the end of a topic we’ll take a short break before we begin a new theme as part of a new series. When we begin we'll again hold an introduction night that you are welcome to attend. If you want to commit to the new village series you are welcome to. You can remain in your previous village or get to know more artists in a new village.
