Arts & DIY
Long recognized for its power to enhance creativity, improvisation is increasingly acknowledged for its other off-stage attributes, including its ability to help change one’s mindset. In this fun, interactive, and engaging workshop we will explore the gifts of improvisation, discover what it means to have an improvisational mindset, learn tools and techniques to cultivate it, and experience how that mindset can be applied to life, work, and play.
Indeed, it is often the smallest mindset shifts that can bring the biggest results. Join us to explore how teeny transformations, applied to the everyday, can have profound changes and lasting results. You will leave with a tiny toolkit of everyday improv practices to help your hopes, dreams, and wishes for 2018 come alive. Unleash your improv superpowers.

I get that improvisation can change your day, or week, but change your life? Really?
Well first of all, we are all changing, every moment. Part of the gift of improv is first becoming aware and paying attention to that change and then figuring out how to direct it.

Let Jeanne know!
In 2012, Jeanne left her lucrative career in academia and heritage conservation to pursue an equally lucrative one in training, storytelling, performance, improvisation, and writing. She has told stories, produced, emceed, and done improv in all sorts of places, some sanctioned, some not. In 2014, while living in Hong Kong, she made it official and established a small company, Lamb Ink. She has since performed, presented, facilitated, and conducted workshops and trainings in North America, Europe, and Asia. Ms. Lambin's workshops have been described as "amazing," "powerful," and "great fun."
