Ashland is the place to be this summer for Social Artists! Whether you are just starting out on your Social Artist journey, or have been involved for years, check out our summer offerings and how you can get involved.
Social Artistry Odyssey
August 22-28 2015
Jackson Wellsprings Resort, Ashland
Visit www.socialartistryodyssey.com for schedule details, stories of last year’s work, and more: videos, photos, bios of leaders throughout the event, inspiration!
The Social Artistry Odyssey is a weeklong adventure for those who aspire to dedicate their lives to a thriving world. Through interactive exercises, guided reflections, and transformative experiences participants will develop a deeper understanding of self, of society, and of connectivity via the holistic methodology of Social Artistry – taught by young, vibrant, trained Social Artistry facilitators, and by Jean Houston herself.
The experience is intended to be intergenerational – open to all ages, with a focus on supporting youth to take ownership of our collective future. You can sign up for each event separately, or the whole week! If you have already had an Introduction to Social Artistry course, there will be a Deepening course taught by the superb Social Artistry trainer, Joyce McNamara. Learn more here: http://www.socialartistryodyssey.com
Richard Geer’s transformative community-creating theater workshop is part of the Odyssey culminating in a performance Thursday evening, August 27. Also you can experience Jean Houston and Peggy Rubin teaching Quantum Powers, and the community-building SPARK Project Day, where the specific changes participants seek to make in our world will find the “spark” (networking, collaboration, Social Artistry practices, and on-the-ground support) they need to go from dream to reality.
To show you the powerful effects of the Social Artistry Odyssey, we have interviewed some of last year’s participants to share their experience. You can view them by going to YouTube and searching for “Social Artistry Odyssey.”
How About a Contribution?
Can’t make it to Ashland this summer? Please consider making a gift towards the Odyssey.
Young people are one of our most precious resources, and empowering them to unlock their inner super heroes, spark their inner fire, and understand their crucial role on the planet at this time is key to creating a connected, flourishing world, where there is love, understanding, right livelihood, and empowerment for all.
The Odyssey ignites and transforms the lives of our young people, as you will have experienced when you watch the interviews. It is so crucial to ensure that EVERY young person who wishes to attend this life-altering experience is able to do so. Many of our brilliant young people lack the financial means to take off from their day jobs and invest in their dreams by attending the Odyssey.
Your gift helps Odyssey offer half scholarships to select participants who demonstrate both financial need and a vibrant, impassioned desire to attend the event and become the change they wish to see in the world. We thank you in advance – for considering this in your philanthropy, for seeking to make a difference, and for supporting the turbo-charged emergence of young Social Artists who will take ownership of the future at this time of great and powerful transition.

Social Artistry Summit
August 28 – 30
Hidden Springs Wellness Center, Ashland
The Social Artistry Summit is happening again this summer. Join social artists from around the world as we consciously create and celebrate the community to participate in the evolution of our planet. You do not have to be a seasoned social artist to attend.
These events are for anyone who
- desires to serve the world authentically through their actions
- seeks to contribute to a “world that works for everyone.”
- Longs to be with a loving, creative, dynamic likeminded community
The Summit follows the Odyssey and is a time of gathering for all social artists. A time to expand and deepen in Social Artistry. Jean Houston will open the Summit. Others who will share their work and experiences are Gerry and Denise Dignan, Janet Sanders, Doug Banner, Vera Grant, Christiane Meunier, and Rhea Miller.
