Some Common Questions

Can I pay in instalments?

No. To keep things simple, payment must be made in full when you register. If you have any troubles paying online, contact us at

Can I get a discount for my group?

No. We've worked our numbers hard to keep this as affordable for you as we can, and are unable to offer discounts below our early bird rates.

Are Scholarships Available?

Hopefully. We are working to secure a small number of scholarships and will post about them as soon as they are confirmed. These will cover half of your registration fee and be awarded by a jury process for all applications. We recommend you do not wait for a scholarship to register unless you cannot attend any other way. It's best to register early and hold your spot, then we will apply your scholarship later by refunding half of your fee, should you receive one.

Can I get a refund if I cannot make it?

Yes and no. Within the first 48 hours of your registration, you can get a full refund, minus any service fees charged by our online registration provider, Picatic (we'll show you clearly what those are if you require this refund). After 48 hours, there is a non-refundable $100 portion, and the rest is fully refundable until April 15. After April 15, there are no refunds (excepting the 48 hour policy above), but registrations are transferrable, so long as space is available in the desired track.

What will the 'faith' component of the weekend look like?

One goal of this weekend is to help artists grow spiritually, and we are rooted in the Christian faith tradition. Our hosts are Jesuit nuns, our retreat producers are Anglicans and our instructors come from various Evangelical traditions. In other words, this is an ecumenical event with wide-open doors. To respect a broad spectrum of traditions, the weekend will be light on dogma and heavy on offering spaces to seek out and connect with God in a way that is meaningful for you. All spiritual experiences during the weekend are optional, so you can feel free to participate or sit out for those portions of the weekend. Or a little of both. Artists of any belief, or no belief, are welcome to attend.   

You will also have the opportunity to meet with our Arts Chaplain, Dave Von Bieker.
