August 4th-6th, 2017 Set in a rustic retreat in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, 24 artists from all walks of life will gather together to focus on their “life vision.” The Artist Weekend is a 3-day, action-oriented retreat designed to empower the artist in us all.

Participants include actors, writers, directors, dancers, choreographers, producers – as well as other performance and visual artists. Renowned acting coach, J.D. Lewis will lead participants through an agenda of self-discovery which will include writing exercises, fun and interactive games, group discussion and goal setting.

The Artist Weekend was established 15 years ago in the mountains above Los Angeles. Over the years, the weekend has been fine-tuned into one of the most dynamic weekends of self-exploration and discovery. Participants return from the weekend focused on what they want in their future and have designed a clear plan of action to help facilitate the transformation of dreams into reality.

“It’s a weekend of motivation, creativity and positive energy. To connect with other actors and artists for a weekend of reflection and goal setting in the mountains was a really unique and refreshing experience. Two of the best and most memorable experiences of my life are connected to The Artist Weekend.”
