Register Now for the 2010 Glen Workshop Creativity from the Margins: Art as Witness, August 1-8, 2010
The Glen Workshop is an illuminating conference on the arts and religion, where participants practice and strengthen their craft and vision in community. This weeklong event, hosted at St. John s College Santa Fe, combines the best elements of a workshop, an arts festival, and a symposium. Morning workshops are small, so faculty can provide ample attention to beginners as well as those advanced in their craft. This year s theme is Creativity from the Margins: Art as Witness, which focuses on the challenges for artists of faith participating from a minority s perspective in a world often unconcerned with engaging religious issues. This year s celebrated faculty includes poets Marilyn Nelson and B.H Fairchild, fiction writer Melissa Pritchard, screenwriter Bradford Winters, painterJoel Sheesley, illustrator Barry Moser, musicians Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist of Over the Rhine, and spiritual writer Lauren Winner. Editor and author Rodney Clapp will lead a seminar exploring the week s theme in greater depth through discussion and in-class creativity, and film critic Jeffrey Overstreet will lead a film seminar (new this year!) exploring contemplative cinema. In the afternoon, lectures, readings, and presentations enrich the Glen experience, as do the nightly ecumenical worship services incorporating the arts. Free time provides recreational and artistic opportunities within the rich culture and traditions of Santa Fe, including writing, conversation, hiking and exploring the glorious Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northern New Mexico. Please note that class sizes are limited, and several are already full: don't wait too long to register!
