Next Workshop
 
JUNE 24! 1pm to 3pm
@ Centre for Social Innovation 720 Bathurst. 2nd floor Meeting Room.
 
Run by Tiny Tricycle Poets from B.C.
 
Join the Vancouver-based Tiny Tricycle Poets in a creative session of poetry, comedy, and free-form clowning! Participants will be led through a variety of play-based exercises that are focussed on building connection and vulnerability on stage. Our goal is to get goofy and playful to release our inner clowns! The workshop will also include a writing portion that will prompt participants to diversify their creative writing skills and break away from conventional writing tropes.

What's Eating You is a workshop developed from Ebony's one woman show, HUNGER.
The workshop helps us begin to deconstruct and critically reflect on where we have come from;
what wounds, weapons and wonders we possess as a result;
where those circumstances have gotten in our way; and where we want to go.
