Follow Three of Cups:

Getting together with old or new friends to learn, make, create, and socialize is what Three of Cups is all about.

The meaning behind the Three of Cups represents a period of happiness. You will be able to forget the worries of your daily life and spend quality time with family and friends.”

I don’t know much about tarot, but when I found out about the concept behind the Three of Cups card, it’s meaning summed up everything that I aim to generate with this project — a spirit of conviviality and mutual support. Artmaking and other intellectually stimulating socializing are not only fun things to do, but are actually good for us. So, let’s do this.

Most of the events we produce will happen on the North Shore of Boston, with some also likely to occur in the cities and towns that make up the Boston metro area.

Join our list. (How else will you know about upcoming events? You could also follow us on Instagram or Twitter. Either way. It’s really up to you.)

Success! You're on the list.
