Please join us for a FREE special lecture series on the Art of Being an Artist by AIR Megan May.

While an Artist is many things, they are first and foremost a human being on a unique journey. Artists, as it is for all creatives, have the responsibility of simultaneously creating a culture and questioning culture. Art should make you feel, think and respond to the world in a different way after encountering it. Artists are healers, thinkers, and visionaries. In this series, Photo AIRS, Megan May, will take an in-depth look at several aspects of her own theory and practice of the Artists place in society today.

Each day we wake, rise and greet the day with a myriad of thoughts and decisions. These thoughts and decisions create our reality in a very real and practical way.

Please join us for an evening focused on the importance of Ritual, the role it plays in personal and collective healing and why the artist (and everyone!) need it to thrive!
