Monday 8th SEPTEMBER, 2008 “The Right to Write”
You are warmly invited to our next meeting on Monday 8th SEPTEMBER, 2008
Topic: “The Right to Write” with Bridget Brandon
Explore the delights of life writing as a facilitation tool
Life writing is a tool to connect with stories from life to dissolve barriers, prejudice and preconceived ideas in a magical way. This can happen in a very short time.
Come and experience how you can use life writing as a warm up in different group contexts. Short provocations from everyday life moments can quickly create connection and intimacy in groups. You will learn from doing and then have time to address questions and concerns.
This is not about "writing" per se it is about using story and life experience to connect to yourself and to each other. Writing is the tool.
Writing skills are not required. This session is suitable for those who have never written and want to have a go at writing and those who think they don't know how to write.
Bridget Brandon is fuelled by a strong desire to bring out the creativity, fun and adventurous spirit in others. Bridget is an artist, a teacher, an actor, an entrepreneur, a mother who co-founded and directed the Drama Action Centre in Sydney for twelve years. After five years of living in a yoga community abroad she returned to Australia to set up Storyworks in 1998.
