An in-depth course on inclusion in improv, aimed at teachers, coaches, and directors, but open to all. Using a mix of exercises and conversation, we’ll learn about holding space for others, unconscious bias, assumptions, anti racism, gender diversity, disability inclusion, boundaries, writing and using a code of conduct, triggers, identity, and more. As improvisers we’re used to building new worlds together; let’s make the world of our classes and stages one where everyone is safe and seen.
Monica and Stephen are both experts at inclusion in improv, and will create a space where it’s safe to ask difficult questions and to fail. With guest teachers along the way to make sure lived experience is central, we’ll dig into myriad areas of inclusion, leaving you feeling equipped to be in a position of care, and to roll up your sleeves and help.
