In these unique workshops participants experience a collaborative, creative process in which they explore and respond to a given theme through movement, sound, drawing and interactions. Typically 1-2 hours, collaboration workshops can be used to develop group dynamics and cohesion in large or small groups of any age: as organisational training or curriculum-related school incursion; during a conference or event.
Workshops are tailored, through facilitation and debriefing, to achieve specific outcomes such as:
collaboration | teamwork | leadership | role-taking | group dynamics
listening | trust | individuality in community | acceptance | perspectives
trusting imagination | living creatively | freedom within boundaries
performance | composition/choreography/art-making | pure fun
Explore the space | warmup movement and vocalisation
Introduce the theme | introduction of two or three related stimuli (poem, cartoon, picture, etc)
Explore the theme | participants respond to the theme with improvised movement, sound or drawing
Continue exploring | participants improvise again
Discuss and plan | participants give and receive feedback and decisions are made
Final exploration | the culminating short piece is performed, exhibited or presented
A large group is split into groups of 5 or 6, then groups combined when explorations have developed sufficiently and a large group exploration/performance/exhibition/presentation is developed to incorporate each group’s explorations.
This process is an open space activity and requires all people in the space to be involved.
A more in-depth design thinking process for development of concepts or strategies can be facilitated over a full day or multiple sessions.
Fees depend on numbers, length of time and context (conference, school class, staff PD etc).
