Maybe it was gut instinct. Maybe it was the obvious next step after creating a destination studio in the Texas hills for artists and a community concert series. Maybe it was that we have met so many folks, young and old, who are courageously claiming their own gifts—finding their own voices. Maybe it's that we looked at the culture and saw a numbing cloud of commerce and conformity. Okay, for these reasons and probably others we don't yet know, we started something, and it's starting us. The Blue Rock Foundation is a call to creative life—a song, a whisper, a battle cry to inspire growth, courage, insight, and skill. For individuals. For community. Here's what we've come to love and to say out loud.
The Blue Rock Foundation exists to encourage and foster the creative spirit through expression in the written, visual, and performing arts.
We affirm that personal and shared discovery are essential to human fulfillment. We develop workshops and encounters to inspire and facilitate
Creative Engagement for Everyone.
That's it. Who's entitled to a life of discovery? You are. And we're gonna find every way we can to inspire and encourage you. Who may tap the creative spirit of this age? All of us.
It's something we hold in common.
