Thursday, November 20 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Coalition Resource Center

Are we the problem? The solution? Both or neither? Join a small group of Green Coalition members and friends to explore these questions through creative means. We will discover and explore our closely held beliefs, hopes and fears by traveling into our inner world. Resources abound and are revealed when forays are made together. Art making, writing and shared texts will serve as a framework.

The process will be facilitated by Pat B. Allen, Ph.D., ATR, Green Coalition member, artist, writer and art therapist and author of two books: Art is a way of knowing (1995) and Art is a spiritual path (2005). Pat has also earned a permaculture design certificate and is a Master Gardener in Ojai. Before moving here 12 years ago, she founded the Open Studio Project in Evanston, IL where she now serves as visiting faculty. Her present work is about Collaborative Inquiry Through Art as a means to engage the natural world.

Come for an introductory experience and decide if you’d like more. NO art or writing experience is necessary. The experience is meant to provide support for activists and concerned citizens and to aid Pat in her research on these topics.

A suggested donation of $10 for OVGC supporting members and $15 for non-members payable at the door will go to support the Green Coalition. Space is limited to 18 participants, so please RSVP early to membership@ojaivalleygreencoalition.com.
