International Jewish Artist Retreat – For two consecutive years, Asylum brought together 65 multi-disciplinary artists from around the world to learn from experts, working artists, and from each other. Participants learned from master classes led by professionals from leading arts organizations, explored Jewish themes and ideas, and had the opportunity to share skills and discuss their own work.
Asylum brought together 140 multi-disciplinary artists from around the world to learn from experts, working artists, and each other. With a wide range of professional development and creative sessions—from “Artists Websites and Blogs,” to “Guided Improvisation,” to “The Art of Proposal Writing”—the Connection Point provided Asylum artists with necessary skills and creative space to advance their careers as professional, Jewish “art creators.” Throughout the gathering, participants explored Jewish themes and identities, shared skills and discussed their own work. Asylum Arts is run by Connector Rebecca Guber.
