Strategies for Generative Collaboration
In this joyful, action-based, on-your-feet workshop, we will explore practices that support collaboration by developing our ability to fully perceive and respond to what a moment is asking of us. Using creative principles that artists work with regularly in the studio, we will discover ways of recognizing our default habits as members of an ensemble, organization, community or team, and cultivate practices that help us expand into new, imaginative possibilities. We will develop our capacities for deep listening, navigating complex systems, adapting to change and becoming resilient in the face of the unknown. We will explore the ways in which our engagement with others and our world can generate positive, co-creative outcomes.
