Escaping Quicksand: Stuckness and Self-Determination

Free – donations welcome

This is a sociodrama-based workshop that enables participants to take active roles in exploring their situations during and post coronavirus. We offer opportunities to collaboratively create a world that escapes the stuckness of no or limited movement to one in which everyone move towards a certain kind of freedom, even when they cannot leave wherever they are.

Register in advance – this workshop includes interactive elements, which will only be available to a limited number of participants via Zoom. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Or watch without interaction below during/after the live stream.

Free – donations welcome.

From SCAN (Sociodrama and Creative Action Network), formed in 2012 by a group of practitioners who work with groups using this creative method. Sociodrama explores the relationships within and between groups in societies, whether local, national, global or universal. As sociodramatists we analyse such ‘systems’ by setting them out physically and giving voice to identified roles within the system. Through role explorations the practitioner helps the group to identify where new responses might be possible and to practise the necessary skills to achieve the desired change. The emphasis is always on understanding how individuals, teams, and organisations function.
