We believe that art is an illuminating force.
We provide a venue for the artist to contribute direction on our collective journey.
We encourage them to walk their light on our path.
Historically, artists have been the most effective agents in society to use their work to expose injustices, to right the wrongs, to inspire the hopeless, and effect positive change where it is needed. Because of this, art that is created for truth and the common good is an illuminating and guiding force to direct a society in the way it ought to go.
THE INCUBATOR & CO-WORKING SPACE
Walk the Light has launched an incubator and residency program supporting the entrepreneurship of women artists in the heart of downtown Dallas called Varenport.
Varenport awards fully sponsored residencies to Dallas-based women artist entrepreneurs which includes a free, professional co-working environment that offers much needed moral support, networking opportunities, continuing education, and mentorship resources to women artists.
Much more than a typical residency, members can enjoy the dynamics of a co-working environment by becoming a family with an artist community that leads to the development of collaborative relationships. Varenport also accepts paying members to dock at the office and studio.

IN OTHER WORDS...
"The hero is the one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by. The saint is the man who walks through the dark paths of the world, himself a light."
"The purpose of art is to find a way to wake people up who are going through their lives sleepwalking and say: 'Stop it. You can't walk past this. This is your life.'"
"Art creates the standards for perception and cognition for a society. Without great art, there are no great ideas and a lesser community."
-David W. Boles
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
