Unity Artists Coalition

ART & CONNECTION

Unity Artists Coalition is designed to be a network for Unity/spiritually-focused artists from all creative disciplines. Connections between spirituality and the arts are explored in an online format and monthly meetings. We offer encouragement and support through local and global platforms. Program offerings & Membership details below.

If your spiritual center is considering hosting a local Artists Coalition, we encourage you to read the article at the bottom of the page offering 10 tips for starting an Artist Coalition.


UNITY VILLAGE / KANSAS CITY AREA CHAPTER

Our monthly meetings and Unity Artist Coalition FB group are FREE and open to the public.

Join our Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/440632029386396/

Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 11am – 12:30 PM at Unity Village, 1901 NW Blue Parkway, Unity Village, MO 64065.

ArtsForums, our on-site meetings, include networking opportunities, space to share and collaborate on creative works, and guest presenters. It is designed to support artists in their work, to be a space for exploring ideas and spiritual concepts, and to celebrate the creative beings that we all are. In that, we encourage anyone that is intrigued by this concept to drop-in (virtually or in-person); a person does not have to self-identify as “an artist” or as a “creative person” to engage in our events. All that is needed is curiosity and some openness.

Some previous examples of themes we’ve used for ArtsForums with guest presenters are:

  • The Creative Process and Imagination (Reverend Paul Hasselbeck)
  • Homelessness explored through a photographic lens (Paul McMillian)
  • Spiritual Improv (Ned Kelley)
  • Marketing for artists (Kimberly Beers)
  • Writing for the Daily Word (Beth Hammock)

Please visit the events calendar for a listing of upcoming Artist Coalition meeting dates and guest speakers.

Introducing a NEW Writer’s group hosted by Unity Artists’ Coalition.
Unity Artists Coalition is expanding creative opportunities by offering the formation of a writer’s group, which will meet on the Second Saturday of the month, right after the monthly UAC meeting.

If you are called to the written word and love spending time with creatives who are answering the call of their heart, join us at our first gathering on Saturday, January 12. We are here to support each other, to connect to our passion, and to create a community of connection and personal expression.
