Idealistic.

Visionary.

These are characteristics at the core of a conference, “The Creator’s Art: A Confluence for Art, Psychology and Renewal,” happening in Helena June 10-13 at Tim Holmes’ Studio, 446 N. Hoback.

It’s a gathering of international artists, poets and Jungian practitioners who are delving into the question, how does life-changing transformation happen?

“We are at a unique moment in history,” said Holmes, who is one of six conference organizers. “We are all faced with these crises: climate change, the demise of democracy, political bifurcation and the rise of autocracy. We are dealing with all these things all at once.

“It seems like civilization is just headed to the cliff, and we are standing on the edge looking over the precipice.
