“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” —Henry David Thoreau

Pathways is an event/community/series of events designed to bring together creative individuals who are pursuing a higher intention/higher level of consciousness in their lives and with their art. The first Pathways show took place in September of 2004. It was our first event, and it was magical, creating many lasting effects and changing the lives of everyone involved.

So in October 2009, we began a series of events called Pathways. They focus on experiencing cutting edge, groundbreaking art in its many forms: sculpture, music, painting, performance, video, and dance. While we believe in appreciating art, we don’t necessarily enjoy the quiet, sterile halls of museums. We believe in placing art in context – the context in which it was created.

It initiated a series of happenings, art and music oriented events that took place in many different places and involved many different people. The one thread that tied them together was their intent. This was not only about having fun and dancing. This was not only about standing next to walls filled with art and watching people try to make sense of what was in front of them. This was about us experiencing art, living it – if only for a night – taking a part in the creation of a being greater than ourselves.

These events went on for almost 5 years. They were varied, each one offering a different angle on the original vision, popular, and rewarding. But still, we knew, they were not on the same level as the original Pathways, not without a clear theme to bring the intent into focus and beam it across to everyone. As time went on it became clear: if we wanted to experience the same magic, we had to bring back the focus of the original event.

Pathways events feature interactive art, music, workshops, and above all, a community that, we hope, will inspire its members to take their lives – and their art – to the next level.
