The Nest project is artist, Debbie Baxter’s response to the ever-growing pain, injustice, devastation, and wounding in our culture. It is an expression of returning to home, safety, and to our innocence. It also gives people a transformative experience by allowing them to strip it all down, hop into The Nest, and be witnessed and photographed.
“The inspiration for building a nest came to me as a way to bring form and symbolism to my own personal journey. It was a personal quest for unconditional love and holding of my pain and wounds. It was built as a representation of HOME.
The mission with this project is to get as many people in The Nest as a way to show that when we strip it all down….we are all the same, we all have wounding, and have all come the same place no matter where we were born, the color of our skin, who we choose to love, and who we pray to.” ~ Debbie Baxter
There are limited spaces so please RSVP by reserving your ticket HERE

Hosted by Selena Pinnell
"What is it that makes us human? Is it that we love, that we fight ? That we laugh ? Cry ? Our curiosity ? The quest for discovery ? Driven by these questions, filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent three years collecting real-life stories from 2,000 women and men in 60 countries. Working with a dedicated team of translators, journalists and cameramen, Yann captures deeply personal and emotional accounts of topics that unite us all; struggles with poverty, war, homophobia, and the future of our planet mixed with moments of love and happiness."
