Fuel Our Artistry
We are about lending a helping hand…
One of the principal ways we build loving worlds through loving words and art is by donating services to communities and for-good organizations.
These include in-person and livestreamed virtual Plein Air Poetry of Nature Walks creative mentoring activities for community organizations serving youth such as King Street Center and Spectrum Youth & Family Services, as well as educational visual and public art and poetry projects such as our “Loving Heart of Healthy Communities” project in the city of New Haven, Connecticut through the Livable City Initiative; in Montpelier, Vermont through PoemCity 2021 and VermontReads!; and in central Vermont through Central Vermont Council on Aging’s and Vermont Arts Council’s Creative Care Kits. We also offer the free ongoing community Voicing Art Poetry Reading Series, open to all ages and experiences locally and around the world thanks to livestreaming, Golden Threads of Good Book Club and weekly Open Studio Fridays. As we like to say, “Loving words and works of art don’t just grow on trees”. They take a lot of love, time, energy, effort, quiet space, imagination, dedication, coordinated cooperation of many lives, and some awesome tech to come into being. So if you believe in the value and power of building loving worlds through loving words and art through the recognition and nurturing of all lives, please support our work with the generosity of your loving heart.
Current Donated Community Event: Artist Talk with JC Wayne: ‘Art for Good’ (in person)
Sunday, January 29th, 2-3 pm
Pierson Library | Shelburne, Vermont
Join me as I share the stories of good behind my art in my current solo exhibit at Pierson Library and Ukrainian youth art currently exhibited in their Children’s Library to illustrate how and why I use art and words to build loving worlds through making art that responds to poetry and writing poetry that responds to art and by hosting the ongoing ekphrastic (art-inspired) Voicing Art Poetry Reading series. Talk includes tours of the art and optional ekphrastic (art-inspired) poetry-writing.
