art + soul has been unfurling since 2013 as an experiment and expression of finding innovative ways to transfigure tired, wounded and neglected stories of spirit and soul through the vessels of re-imagination and expressive creativity.
Founder Susannah Crolius, M. Div., has ministered in both traditional and non-traditional ways: as Hospital Chaplain, as Hospice Chaplain and Bereavement Counselor, as Parish Pastor, as Intentional Interim Minister to congregations in crisis and working to provide social support to refugee families.
Susannah graduated from Starr King School for the Ministry, a Unitarian Universalist seminary in 1995, and was ordained in the United Church of Christ denomination, spending 25 years within the UCC before choosing to step out beyond the boundaries of any singular denominational identity as the contours of and need for spiritual community continue to shape-shift.
art + soul continues to learn, grow and deepen through the gifts of collaboration with several creative partners.
