What is a Glasshouse Experience?
“Practice does not make perfect. Practice makes permanent.
Repeat the same mistake over and over and you don't get any closer to Carnegie Hall”. (Sarah Kay Poet)
Intergenerate Australia/NZ 2022 conference wants to create a very special environment we are calling "A Glasshouse Experience". You can’t throw stones in glasshouses, if you do you are going to have a mess. We want to create a space where there is no judgement, rather there is permission to try and practice new things. Glass houses are places where things grow faster and creates a safe place to starting. Each "Glasshouse experience" will be facilitated by a team led by Tammy Preston, with the focus of learning, growing and worshiping together. They will be a creative, reflective and fun spaces, where many voices are heard and allowed to be expressed. This will be a great place to start connecting across the ages, and learn that we are all stronger and richer for the experience.

Are the only paint brushes on site in the creche? Do you have carpets? Does your church own a laminator? If you answered ‘yes’ to one of these questions, you definitely need to rock up to the Art and Worship workshop
