The Glen Workshop combines the best elements of a craft workshop, arts festival, and spiritual retreat.

It only lasts a week but for many it’s a powerful creative catalyst and source of friendships that continue for years. Artists, writers, musicians, patrons of the arts, and spiritual wayfarers of all stripes are welcome.

ONLINE FOR EVERYONE

We launched registration for the 2021 Glen Workshop with the hope of offering a hybrid program both in Asheville, NC and online. In conversation with our community and in light of ongoing safety concerns, we’ve decided to move the entire 2021 Glen Workshop online. We’re excited to build on a whole year of online programming experience to create a dynamic Glen that harnesses the best aspects of virtual gatherings in service of a week full of creative leaps, meaningful engagement with friends new and old, and artistic and spiritual inspiration. Visit the Schedule to see what we have in store for you this year including Glen Cohorts, daily walks with our Artist in Residence, Glen Festival passes, and more.

2021 GLEN THEME: PLACE

The last year has invited many of us into a thicker relationship with place: with the homes where we quarantine, the public spaces we navigate with new caution, the vacation destinations we dream about, and the neighborhood streets we walk to avoid going stir-crazy in the meantime. Even our computers have transformed from objects to places, ushering us into the homes of loved ones, yoga studios, concert halls, museums, and countless other virtual gatherings, including the 2021 Glen Workshop! This year we’ll be exploring the ways in which our surroundings feed our creative vision. And we’ll also consider how art—both making it and sitting with it—sharpens our capacity for attention to the places we live and move and have our being.
Our theme creates a through line for the week. While not the only topic of conversation, it is an opportunity for focused reflection and creative expression during our time together.
