Consider arts-based facilitation in the workplace, classroom, retreat setting or youth camp to foster new possibilities for equitable change.
When I facilitate, I bring a range of tried and tested arts-based approaches to group engagement while fostering safety and a clear direction as to the structure of the day for youth or adult participants. I have lived experience of several of the complex topics I address in groups and I balance these with questions, humour, cultural competencies, flexibility and creative risks as we re-imagine our lives, our homes, organizations and communities together. I enjoy the magic of presence and spontaneity, adapting to what is happening moment-by-moment, the work unfolding before me.
Think differently. Agitate usefully. Appreciate all that is right in this precious world. Improvise, a lot!
To live and work in a community where justice and peace reign and where we are all supported to take creative risks we never thought possible. To live in empathy, take delight in our differences and as a result be propelled to accomplish our biggest dreams knowing that our neighbour's liberation is bound up with our own.
