A week can change a life.
July 31 - August 7, 2016
St. John’s College
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Situated in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Glen Workshop is equal parts creative workshop, arts festival, and spiritual retreat. The Glen’s arresting natural environment is contrasted by its casual and inviting crowd of artists, writers, musicians, art appreciators, and spiritual wayfarers of all stripes.
Learn all about the Glen Workshop here.
When you register, you’ll choose from among ten workshop and seminar experiences led by acclaimed artists. Workshops and seminars gather each morning during the Glen. During the afternoons and evenings, the Glen faculty offer a smorgasbord of readings, lectures, art presentations, screenings, and concerts for all. Amid these riches, there are also opportunities to share your work at open mics, converse and laugh over good food and drink, seek contemplation and hike the beautiful wilderness, and explore the rich culture of the American Southwest.

The 2016 Lineup
Our faculty members have been chosen not only because of their excellence as writers or artists, but also because they are sensitive and effective teachers and leaders.
Like Image itself, the Glen is an ecumenical Christian enterprise that seeks to balance inclusiveness with a clear Christian identity. Since we are human, we will always fail at this balancing act, but our efforts should be sincere and sensitive. We hope the combination of prayer-filled music with thoughtful reflection will create a worship experience that is rich and welcoming.
