Hello lovely crafters!
So way back in March, when things were starting to shift, and it looked like we had to cancel Soul Craft I had an inkling of an idea. You see, over the years I've had many many kind emails from people who have seen the The Craft Session Retreat or the Soul Craft Festival or read the blog, who have asked - really kindly - if I could think about putting some of the conversations, talks, presentations and workshops online. They weren't able to be with us due to geography or circumstances or responsibilities - and so they asked if I could figure it out.
But where I got stuck was how do we create community around the different ideas, because I believe that the conversations that we have afterwards, the conversations that we share with the people around us, are often where the true magic lies. It is in sharing the ideas that we have heard or translating them into something we can relate to, that leads to change in our lives making the world a better, more beautiful place.
So what to do....
And then it occurred to me, as we became more house-bound and were drawn more into the online world, that maybe there was a way of doing it that would still have the magic of a communal event.
And so.... Soul Craft Online was born.
It is much more than a writers festival for makers. And it is much more than a series of extended TED-type talks or interviews.
Instead it is a place to gather - online - to talk about ideas that matter, and how making supports us, connects us and changes us. It is about having a conversation about ideas that I know you champions care about!
So Soul Craft Online is a month-long online gathering where we can come together to talk about the ideas, thoughts and stories about how making elevates our lives. It is lush with nourishing and life enriching content, shared by a wonderful group of presenters who generously share their thoughts, ideas and passions in this moment about why making matters to them.
