In this workshop you will learn, explore and apply how we can use theatre as a way to create performance pieces from those who do not have a voice. Through the methodology of the Theatre of Yes, people’s creativity enhances their personal talent so that they believe in themselves and stop feeling that “I can’t, I’m not enough, I don’t know how to do anything.”

They can find themselves from another perspective and use their personal stories to help them escape the victimization in which they sometimes find themselves trapped.

 

To create theatre pieces from personal experience.
To understand how to unlock creativity from those who are marginalized.
To use theatre to break out of victimization and empower those who do not have a voice.

This workshop is for you if…

- You feel that you still have time to turn your life around so that the theatre is more present in it, bringing more happiness and greater personal and professional well-being.

- You want to awaken your body, your emotions and your creativity, which have been dormant for a long time.

- You would like to learn new theatre techniques to use with other groups and so that your life has a fuller purpose.

- You want to find a space where your sensitivity and creative intensity are understood in a group environment with other people like you.

- You long to contribute your grain of sand to society and you feel that creativity is a weapon against this neglect.

What is the Theatre of Yes?

A theatrical language with which to give life to high-quality works using the personal stories of people who are not professional actors but who have a lot to say. An honest, generous and beautiful language used with the result that the spectators present break their prejudices and we all become closer as a society.
The Theatre of Yes can help unlock your “Noes” and help other people to empower themselves.

Personal values ​​for the base of the Theatre of Yes

CREATIVITY

Creativity as a way to awaken consciences, share silenced stories and transform society. In all my years of experience I have seen how the Theatre has been an engine of change, transformation, realization and analysis, as well as a form of forgiveness and bringing communities together.

EMPATHY AND COLLECTIVE STRENGTH

I believe in the group as a way to learn, understand, share, advance and break prejudices and stereotypes. In the group you will find a safe, confidential and inspiring space for your learning process.

BEAUTY

Beauty as a means of showing traumas, metaphorical concepts and silenced stories. The processes of the Theatre of Yes are deep and at the same time vital, through which this beauty helps us to reconnect, enjoy, understand each other and move forward together.

SOCIAL JUSTICE

The work is methodical, analytical and validated by years of research and practical experience. This work is based on the use of the Theatre of Yes as a form of social justice, giving a voice to those who do not have one, hearing silenced stories and helping organizations in their creative transformation.

VITALITY

The positive, transformative energy that our body and its own movement give us, generating creativity. Vitality is important as a force for transforming lives, relationships, or past ideas.

Objectives

Break stereotypes and entrenched prejudices, bringing the most forgotten parts of society closer to a space of social and personal recognition.

Wake up and give a voice to the most silenced and abandoned stories in this world.

Create an “army” of creative Yeses to expand theatre as a tool to make the most oppressed groups in the world heard.

Sustain spaces where organizations can, through the creativity of the Yes, discover, reflect and transform entrenched, forgotten or muted themes.

Expand honesty, humility, generosity and simplicity as creative weapons for personal, social, and political understanding.

Get YOUR Play Produced--Long Island’s Studio Theatre Announces Playwriting Class

Type:

Notification of expiration: 

Category:

Description: 

Author, journalist, and multi-published fiction writer Meagan J. Meehan has just announced the debut of her first hybrid offline/online playwriting class which was created in collaboration with Long Island’s Studio Theatre and Artistic Director David Dubin. The twelve-week long class will begin on Wednesday, September 4, and run until Sunday, November 24.

The class runs for 12 weeks, primarily online as it is specifically designed to accommodate people with busy schedules. The class begins on Wednesday, September 4. For the initial class, participants will meet at Studio Theatre in Lindenhurst at 7pm and have a chance to see the stage where their work will ultimately be presented. Although this initial in-person meeting is not required, it is very strongly recommended. 

Aside from the optional initial meeting, the first eight weeks of the class will be conducted online and will be dedicated entirely to the playwriting process. At the end of the class everyone will have completed a short play or a stand-alone scene from an original full-length production. No set times to attend are required during the online weeks, meaning that each student can make their own hours to fit their schedule. 

The final four weeks will be held at theater and are dedicated to casting and rehearsing the plays. By the conclusion of the class, every play will then be presented on Studio Theatre’s famous stage via a one-act play festival that will run on the third weekend in November to celebrate the conclusion of the class. Although the plays will be performed by professional actors, if a playwright chooses to star in their own piece that is also permissible. 

Meagan J. Meehan is a published author, poet, cartoonist and produced playwright who presently works as a journalist and an art and writing teacher. She holds a Bachelors in English Literature from New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), a Masters in Communication from Marist College, and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Curriculum, Instruction and the Science of Learning (a form of Educational Psychology) from University at Buffalo (SUNY). 

Meehan has designed and taught several creative writing classes that end with every participant’s story being published in either a printed anthology or in eBook form. To date, she has hosted fully online Horror writing classes, a children’s book writing course, and will be launching online classes for the genres of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery/Thriller/Crime, and Romance in the near future. This is her premiere playwriting class. 

For the full twelve weeks, which includes the writing, casting, rehearsing, and production, the price is $485. Payment plans for as little as $40 a week (less than $6 a day) are available. There is space for 12 students in the class. Participants are accepted on a first come, first served, basis. If more than 12 students wish to sign up, we can put them on a waiting list. If this initial class is successful, we will launch it again in the Spring.

Meagan J. Meehan launches her “Worthwhile Writing” classes under the umbrella of her fledgling non-profit organization Artsy Cr8tive Initiatives. Anyone who is interested in signing up for the class should email Meagan at ArtsyCr8tiveInt@gmail.com

Banff Centre | Leading by Design | Leadership Intensive

Type:

Notification of expiration: 

Category:

Country:

City:

Description: 

Overview

The challenges we face in our work are increasingly complex, cultural, and dynamic – and they demand courageous, creative responses. To make a real difference, leaders must stretch beyond conventional answers to bring about new solutions that people want to be part of. Leadership opportunities arise from the ability to focus on the possible, the potential, and the promising – rather than on the correct, the complete, or the certain – and from learning to create what’s next. 

In this program, experience a design thinking process first-hand to develop the mindsets and methodologies that have sparked many of the world’s most engaging experiences, successful initiatives, and entrepreneurial solutions. Develop practices for exploring system-level challenges more deeply and building the confidence to respond in ways that both delight and deliver value to those you serve. 

What does the program offer?

  • Challenge assumptions and ask better questions to move beyond old patterns and radically expand the set of possible responses
  • Gain insight into the motivations, aspirations, and behaviours of those you serve, e.g., your stakeholders, customers, or citizens 
  • Increase your comfort with uncertainty and suspend decision-making while continuing to move forward; test and refine ideas before investing in execution
  • Apply visual tools to collaborate on shaping ideas
  • Use techniques that build team relationship for creativity and growth mindsets
  • Practice an intense, immersive approach to tackling challenges to experience the “flow-state” that comes from letting go of control – sharing ideas before ready, learning by doing, and trusting the creative process 
  • Create new things that resonate and fit with peoples’ lives, and in so doing, provide more meaningful experiences and achieve greater impact 
  • Practice inclusivity by engaging diverse perspectives in shaping both opportunities and solutions, and allowing the best ideas to emerge from the intelligence of the whole 

Who should register?

This program is an ideal fit for those who work in complex environments and want to create new responses to the challenges and opportunities they see. It will resonate with those who serve internal or external clients, partners, constituents, or beneficiaries within the private, public, or not-for-profit sector. 

Leading by Design will be most powerful for those who come to the program with a sense of what can be gained from challenging assumptions. It is not for those who don’t want to work intensely and collaboratively with others.  

Please note, our programs are filled on a first come, first served basis. Please register early to secure a confirmation of your spot.

Banff Centre | Contextual Intelligence | Leadership Intensive

Type:

Notification of expiration: 

Category:

Description: 

Overview

“Contextual intelligence requires moving far beyond an analysis of institutional context into areas as diverse as intellectual property rights, aesthetic preferences, attitudes toward power, beliefs about the free market, and even religious differences. The most difficult work is often the “soft” work of adjusting mental models, learning to differentiate between universal principles and their specific embodiments, and being open to new ideas.”      – Tarun Khanna, Harvard Business Review 

Context matters. Today’s leaders operate in increasingly dynamic environments and face a wide range of complex external realities. The success of our programs, projects, and plans so often depends on our ability to read the wider field and anticipate contextual roadblocks. Cultivating this ability gives us deeper insight into the present and the direction it is heading, as well as confidence to sense emerging possibilities. Contextual intelligence – the capacity to see multiple dimensions of our external reality and shape our initiatives accordingly – has never been more important. 

This program draws on the best new-paradigm thinking and practice in strategic planning, systems and complexity theory, and cultural analysis to enable participants to read big picture trends and immediate operating contexts, and leverage them for greater, more durable impact over time. Participants gain awareness of how mental models, often unconscious or unarticulated, can prevent us seeing and being nimble in our response to what is really going on. Whatever the field or sector, whether the focus is a strategic planning process, a communication campaign, or launch of a new product or service, this program will help build the contextual intelligence required to succeed. 

What does the program offer?

This program offers a comprehensive introduction to the foundations of contextual intelligence as a leadership capacity. Bringing together a diverse group of participants from a range of fields and sectors, the program focuses on applied learning through workshops, seminars, case study analysis, small group work, and reflective practice. It provides participants with the mindsets, methods, and tools to (a) understand the nature and power of contextual intelligence; (b) cultivate contextual intelligence in themselves and others; and (c) apply newly gained aptitudes to real-world situations. 

This program is designed to enable participants to apply their learning to a specific initiative (e.g. a strategic plan for their organization, program, or project), and immediately add value to their work interests and settings. 

Who should register?

This program is ideal for anyone interested in creating real value in their work, reconnecting with deep vocational purpose, and retooling for 21st century contextual realities. 

Participants should: 

  • Have some demonstrated experience in their field of vocational practice
  • Have an ability to recognize opportunities, and design and implement solutions
  • Be actively pursuing or considering new opportunities to create impact in their work (e.g. new roles or projects) in light of wider trends and environmental realities 
  • Want to learn more effective strategies for collaborating with a diverse range of stakeholders and improving value chains for more effective and durable outcomes
  • Be willing to take risks, reimagine possibilities, and be curious and eager to learn
  • Approach work and relationships with a spirit of sharing and generosity
  • Desire to foster a reflective practice that takes context seriously
