Gaia Gathering - just a few months away
- Your January Gaia Gathering Update
The itinerary for Gaia Gathering is coming together for a wonderful May long
weekend in Friendly Manitoba - "In One Place and Face to Face" ... Pagans
from all across Canada are giving their input on topics for peer -to-peer
panels, round table discussions, and to discuss ideas and present academic
papers - join the discussion at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Gaia_Gathering .
Merchants are booking their tables (contact cloakedrealm@... . If you
have original pagan chants or songs to share with other communities for use
in ritual or celebration, sign up for the Song Sharing Circle. If you are a
musician with pagan themed music and want to perform at the Sunday night
concert, contact jacinthe.labbe@... . Have you registered yet? The

And for Canadian pagan visual artists - the following announcement:
Here ye! Here ye!
All artists out yonder, we are looking for your creative work! There is to
be an Art Stream for Gaia Gathering Winnipeg� We are looking for anything
within the Visual Arts. This could be a painting, a sculpture, photography
� as long as it is pagan based in nature. If you paint, sculpt, photograph
or create any kind of *visual art,* gather up digital photographs of your
work(s) and submit a small write up describing your work, the medium(s)
used, dimensions, and your full name, contact information, as well as a
little about yourself. Email your submission(s) to jazmine
*Deadline for submissions is Feb. 15 th, 2007.*
If selected, your work will be displayed at the conference and will be part
of an art stream booklet, along with your write up that is submitted. It
is our idea that the artists in the hosting city can show their works live,
while those that are out of town can have theirs shown digitally. This
gives artists in each Canadian city a chance to show live works! We would
also like to open up discussion on the lists to find out if there is
interest in having the artists have a talk on their works or a panel format
about pagan art.
We look forward to seeing the creative genius out
