This Friday: "Mushroom Magic Paint Jam"!
On Friday May 22nd, we are celebrating the 2-month anniversary of the Non-stop VT Global Art Jam with a “Mushroom Magic Paint Jam!” This is to honor the connected mycelial network of artists, spread all over the globe, working together with the same vision --> to inspire humanity through art marking.
We will be starting the day by watching the film “Fantastic Fungi”, followed by an opening ceremony with Alecia Sacred Heart, Emma Marie and Muktha, moving into collectively painting mushrooms led by Veronika Rose. We will dive deep into a panel discussion on the properties of medicinal and edible mushrooms, and finish off the day with an ecstatic dance to DJ CornFlower, which will be streamed live on Facebook, spotlighting artists creating their Mushroom themed paintings!

Week 9 Train Schedule
Thank you to all of the artists and conductors who have been keeping this train on its tracks! It has been running off of pure passion as it has been circling the globe non-stop, since the new moon on March 24th, 2020.
It all began with a small group of crew, committed engineers and conductors, and is now approaching a 2-month anniversary, with over 1000 members in the Facebook group!
We have been diving deep together in our paintings, discussions, watching films, listening to podcasts, music, and featuring live DJs, artists, and guest speakers!
After a decade of painting trains and building a collective of artists all over the world,Amanda Sage decided it was time for the train to leave the station with the global pandemic forcing everyone to slow down. Monty Sharma, Alecia Sacred Heart and Serenity Meg have taken on vital roles of coordination and development as a core crew of engineers with Michael Irish and Alex Polanco in support on various projects.
All powerful medicine, as we learn how to listen to and support one another, building a sustainable community based on collaboration and inspiration.
Vision Train Express
We have broadcast LIVE on Facebook as VT-TV (Vision Train Telos Vision) with 2 featured guest paint jams to share with a wider community what we are up to.
The first session featured artist Alex Sastoque, who shared his visionary process and insights from his studio in Colombia and Romio Shrestha, renowned artist from Nepal, along with musical guest Ada Pasternak.
The second session featured artists Alex Grey and Allyson Grey in a discussion with Stephen Brooks and artists from the Vision Train for Earth Day.
We also streamed 2 presentations by Liba Waring Stambollion, an artist and writer from the UK who shared a presentation on the Sacred Feminine in the Abrahamic Lineage, with DJ Richard Foster; and Roman Villagrana, a founding member of Tribe 13, sharing his wisdom on the 8 steps to synchronization!
After deep reflections, downloads and multiple design sessions master designer Alex Polanco has refined the vision through working with Amanda Sage, the engineer team and conductors to create the Vision Train logo!
