The pinnacle of our 2016-17 season is our first-ever all-day conference (above), about which we are tremendously excited! We are also working on a conference for fall 2017, to be announced soon.
Between now and then, we have a new addition for the 2016-17 season. Pub Nights are held at Downtown Fine Spirits and Wines, off of Colorado and Wasatch. With this more communal format, we will be able to meet more often, hear from more speakers and musicians, and build community as we deepen relationships and explore truth, beauty, and deep questions together (over food and a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks!). Content varies; speakers, musicians, storytellers and poets, discussions, visual art shows, and more. (Who should we feature at an upcoming pub night? Let us know! )
Shared songs are a huge piece of a strong community, and a strong culture of the imagination--come, sing loudly together, and see why.
