'Improvisation and Creativity made easy'

An artist is someone who has kept his or her ability to improvise and create alive and active and who works or plays with those abilities to refine them in a particular artform.

We all used to play and improvise and create as children but, through a whole range of processes, we either 'buckled down' or 'grew up' or 'got serious' or no longer felt confident about our creative abilities.

Story improvisation and creation provides a wonderful window to open on our creativity.

This workshop provides participants with safe and simple ways of exploring their own creativity.

It is suitable as a one off refresher for an existing community group, part of a festival or project, or as a part of series of storytelling workshops. It can be adapted for a wide range of different participant needs.

understanding the nature of stories
saying 'yes' to possibilities

adding value with feeling, dialogue, texture or grit
'ask and you shall receive'
