Calling All Ambi Artists
First Thursday of every month, 6:00-8:30 pm
Ambi Artists are people who want to be more creative. The Ambi Artist group brings together people who create in any medium: writing, painting, sculpting, ceramics, photography, music, film, design, fabric, etc. The group dynamic is based on Julia Cameron's book series The Artist's Way and its creative clusters. Ambi Artist gatherings are fluid, intentionally unstructured events where creative people get together to meet and interact with each other. This open interaction sparks creative inspiration, collaboration, empathy and more to light the creative fires.
Free Concert every second Tuesday evening. Presented in collaboration with the Chattanooga Songwriters Association, the concert series features a variety of music styles and genres presented in a relaxed and intimate setting. The performers present original works and discuss the creative processes. Doors open at 6:30pm for "connect time" and the music begins at 7:00pm. For this month's line up visit our Facebook page.
The Backlot: A Place for Film is an open house for all film groups and anyone interested in any aspect of film & video. On the third Monday of every month The Backlot provides a "space" for groups to meet and network with each other as well as have casting calls, script readings, screenings, professional speakers and workshops etc. The backlot also provides individual film makers and student film makers not associated with any groups the ability to do the same. We have breakout rooms available which provide space for all of the activities mentioned above. For example, in a typical evening multiple meetings, screenings and casting calls may be happening at the same time as well as a general meet and greet. The line-up for any particular night depends on who needs to do what and who is attending. That's why it's called The Backlot and it's available to everybody. For this month's line-up visit our Facebook and click on events. Doors open at 6:30pm
