Thank you for your interest in Greater Nashville's Art, Culture, and Literature Meetup.  By joining this meetup, you will get to socialize with other arts & culture loving patrons, attend the events with a group, and participate in our literature discussions.  You’ll also have an opportunity to form some new friendships!  We hope you'll join us!

This meetup is for those who appreciate: Art, Literature, Museums, Theater & Performance Art, Musicals, Plays, Cultural attractions, Mansions and gardens, Art galleries, Classical Music, Symphony, Orchestra, Ballet, Dance, Opera, Film, Cinema, Documentaries, and Photography.  We'll also visit local parks like Radnor Lake to appreciate the beauty of nature.

We will have regular literature discussions, usually with a screening of a film adaptation.  We'll also have classic film nights at my home.  There are no membership dues for this group.  If you attend an event at my home and eat/drink, I ask you to bring a food item or give a few dollars to help with the cost of the food, drinks, and serving supplies that I provide.

To protect our members privacy and since some meetups are held in members' homes, new members are approved.  If you sign up to attend an event, please update your rsvp if you can no longer attend.
