Are you interested in trying improvisation?
Come join facilitator Kristy Hartsgrove Mooers for an hour of fun group improvisation exercises. Improv is a great way to build interpersonal connections and develop skills for effective and engaging communication in a fun, informal environment.
Benjamin Stasny is joining us from Colorado University at Boulder, where he is a PhD candidate studying the intersection of queer futurity, climate communication, and improvisational pedagogy. While in grad school, Ben has developed workshops that use theatrical techniques for sharing energy and sustaining hope in the face of climate change. He has led these workshops in Boulder, Chicago, London, and now Iowa City. Please use the Google form linked above to register for this event (limit 30 people). This workshop serves as a complement to the afternoon presentation Beyond Speech and Representation: Insights from Child Psychotherapy about the Materiality of Learning (no registration required) given by Dr. Gail Boldt, former University of Iowa faculty member and now distinguished professor of education at Penn State.
