SPECIAL EVENT

Windswept Family Tree Dedication 

Windswept Estate - Berea, Kentucky

July 10, 2022

10:00am

Windswept Family Tree:

The Backstory - Windswept - an estate located in Big Hill, Kentucky near Berea, KY - was the home of Dr. Margaret Allen who served on the music faculty of Berea College. Dr. Allen studied with Martha Stockton Russell, founder of Creative Motion® - a pedagogy which explores patterns of energy, and the natural response of the human body leading to greater artistry in performance.

 

In 1951, Dr. Allen hosted the first annual Windswept Music Workshop to continue the work of Creative Motion. Participation increased as Dr. Allen’s health declined, and the workshop moved to the Berea College campus until 1993. Since then, the Creative Motion® Alliance has continued to sponsor Windswept and other Creative Motion conferences across the country.

Artist and workshop participant, Sheila Meiners Williams, created the copper sculpture to honor the "founding mothers," who led the Creative Motion classes on this estate. In the ensuing years, the tree has grown more beautiful as leaves were added by participants who discovered the benefits of Creative Motion study.

 

The Creative Motion Alliance elected to gift the Windswept Family Tree sculpture to Berea College who agreed to place it on display in Margaret’s home – Windswept - to honor the history and legacy of the Windswept Music Conference and Creative Motion.

On July 10, 2022 at 10am as the 2022 Creative Motion Summer Conference comes to a close, a special dedication ceremony will be held at the Windswept estate honoring our founders and the many students of Creative Motion who have been impacted by the work.
