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 our round table small groups (or what we call villages). Here we are invited into places of sharing art and story as we explore and experience spiritual formation, respond to our creativity and serve one another.
In our next series we are continuing with the theme of '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). Infused into this conversation will be an exploration of the things in our lives that hinder or propel us forward - something we’ve called ‘ALIGN’. It's a time to grow as we support one another in the celebrations and the struggles of our artistic journey and the life we live in Nashville. To find understanding and spiritual grounding in a community of creative explorers.
Come — let’s keep creating the Journey Arts Collective together!
Monday nights at Journey Church
7pm to 9pm
Dates for the current series:
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.
The start of a series (or when you first attend) is an opportunity to explore. If you decide you want to come back you are welcome to sit at different tables and get to know the community. When you are ready we encourage you to choose a table that now functions as your small group for the series (to maximise your experience we encourage this after attending 2 or 3 gatherings). This creates stability and momentum for you and the folk at your table. We welcome new people to join us at any stage in a series.
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 series you are welcome to. You can remain in your previous small group (what we call our ‘village’) or you can take some time to get to know more artists before choosing another group for the series.
