Serious Play: Laughter as Resistance

Sat 4:00pm - 5:30pm

Venue: Relating Arts


An interactive workshop - you'll take away an experience of developing trust, using your body, and having fun, including activities you can bring to other group settings. When times call for urgent action, it's easy to carry more heaviness than we are meant to. How can laughing together build trust and resilience? Is there unexpected power in choosing to play? Can we use play to develop skills we will need in serious times? We'll talk a little about joy and play, emergent strategy, and community—but mostly we'll experience them by baby-stepping through games and activities.
