Each year the community celebrates the myriad of artistry and artists of the Great Mother and New Father Conference Community. This year, Clara will guide exploration of artworks and art forms to inform discourse.

It is our hope that you will be inspired to create and share imagery based on the theme and the potential woven into this beautifully crafted gathering.
