Together we will explore ideas and experiences that support our ability, as individuals and as a community, to navigate this territory with courage and compassion. Each session will consist of an interactive panel discussion around our theme followed by addressing live questions from the audience.

A Céilí Honoring the Life and Work of John O’Donohue

A Céilí is a traditional Irish social gathering…

A gathering of friends of the work of John o’Donahue: read poetry, share stories and remember one of the great writers and inspiration of the 20th century. Potluck to follow.

Host Michael Stone, who considers John to be a dear friend, spent some wonderful days together in Ireland where they laughed, drank, shared jokes and connected heart to heart, and soul to soul. Michael sponsored John in the US on several occasions for workshops and talks, and is so grateful for the immeasurable contribution John made in his life for so many of us.

Artist Talk

Marlene Lowden invites you to join her for an artist talk about her series called a “Blind Contour Homage.” The work is a celebration of Canadian female artists. Many of these women are significantly under-recognized in the Canadian art canon. Marlene has studied artists from several regions, each with diverse cultural heritages and will share some of the fascinating stories that she has learned about them.

Creatives on the Coast

Monthly meetings for connecting with creatives in our community. Open to all. This month we’re going on a field trip to the GPAG. Marlene Lowden will be giving a talk while we view her latest collection. We’ll continue our meeting at Tapworks afterward.
