Arts Facilitation Training
WHAT Arts Facilitation Training
Training groups or one-on-one / virtual or in-person / artists or community organizers, to be better equipped to lead groups.
WHY Facilitation Training is important?
When you gain more confidence in your own facilitation, you are less worried about yourself and more present with the group -allowing you to be a better listener and more grounded to respond.
Growing your creative toolbox of activities gives you more choice to respond spontaneously to groups' needs.
Discovering your own processes in designing your activities stretches you into your own creativity and innovation.
Understanding and learning how to respond to power dynamics and trauma in a group contributes to creating spaces where people can connect with themselves and each other in ways that are loving and caring.
Sharing skills among fellow facilitators builds capacity in creating stronger communities.
HOW How does it work?
Depending to the wants and needs of the organization, group or individual, a training program would be designed appropriately. Trainer meets you were you are at; failure is invited as an opportunity for learning; and trainings are highly experiential.
