ORCHARD of pomegranates
Upcoming Ticketed Events
A GROWING COMMUNITY
Are you wanting to deepen your connection to your creative juices? Are you seeking a community of artists and musicians to share ideas, visions and moments of listening deeply? Are you struggling with the isolation of being an independent artist?
If so… Orchard of Pomegranates is a place for you.
what is ORCHARD of POMEGRANATES?
Orchard of Pomegranates is a Feminist space, inviting like-minded creatives of all disciplines to collaborate, to be held, to be heard and to listen. We work in a multidisciplinary way with our dreams, creative writing, movement, breath, voice, visual arts and with Deep Listening practices inspired by composer Pauline Oliveros.
At the Orchard, you will get valuable feedback from a community of artists and musicians like yourself. It is a safe space to be artistically raw and daring. We offer a supportive environment to bring yourself & your art. Your vulnerability beckons – Nourish your creative soul!
At the Orchard of Pomegranates, we collaborate with cutting-edge artists and musicians of various disciplines to offer you a wide pallet of approaches to and inspire your creative practice. We choose to invite and highlight POC, LGBTQ+, Women and mothers. We work with the body in a variety of ways (in movement and sound) and in this practice, we make a point of representing body-diversity.
In 2022, 15 amazing artists are gathering to support YOUR CREATIVE PRACTICE. We hope you’ll join us!
Ayelet Rose Gottlieb, the Orchard’s founder, is an improviser, composer, vocalist, multi-disciplinary artist and mother of three. Her Jazz-rooted improvisatory approach informs the offerings here, that will enrich a seasoned musician, and open the minds and hearts of non-musician creatives with a willingness to play.
“Gottlieb created “Orchard of Pomegranates” as a platform for teaching, discussion, listening sessions and a safe-space for musical adventure and connectedness. Online, it has gained in reach and significance during these times of musical isolation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Participant/faculty such as Jay Clayton, Theo Bleckmann, Fay Victor, Sofìa Rei, Clarice Assad and Katie Bull foster a relaxed but intensive atmosphere of holistic learning and performance.”
This looks great! How do I join?
There are several ways to get involved. The best first-thing to do is to join our Mailing List to get updates on our current offerings.
If you’d like to “test the waters” feel free to check out any of our free events and live-streams, including our Artist in Residence offerings at IONE’s 27th Annual Dream Festival or Sounding Revolution closing panel with some incredible Jazz vocalists.
If you’re ready for more, you can check out our ticketed series (see above.)
Of course, our favourite way of engaging with you is via Patreon as it’s an ongoing, more in-depth relationship, starting at $5CA a month.
I only want to join an occasional workshop, is that possible?
Select offerings are made into ticketed events. (Community-Tier Patreons get access to them all!)
I don’t want to come to anything but I want to support what you’re doing, how should I do that?
One way you can do that is by becoming a patreon and making a monthly contribution of your choosing. Your support means a TON and helps sustain this community!

I love your offerings but I can’t afford to join right now /
I can only make a specific workshop that’s not a ticketed event
