About Catch the FireScreen shot 2014-03-02 at 11.53.16

Community, youth, non-profit, education, entrepreneurial, and religious organizations all have exciting ambitions, but can struggle to master the creative skills needed to impact people on a deep and lasting level. Catch the Fire is a complete guide to using arts empowerment techniques and group facilitation tools to bring greater vitality and depth to working with groups of youth or adults. Based on the premise that you don’t have to be a professional artist to use the arts in your work, this unique book invites group leaders into the realm of creativity-based facilitation, regardless of previous experience.

“The arts are powerful tools for change. Catch the Fire is full of living examples of how the arts enable us to connect deeply with our own humanity across generations and cultures, while providing us practical tools that can transform us, our communities, and the world around us. (PYE power!)”  PETER GABRIEL, musician

“We need to do a better job of engaging future generations. Catch the Fire gives us hope for a future where young people and all of us are better able to access our humanity and creatively respond to the challenges we face. I encourage anyone who seeks to work across generations to build a more compassionate and empowered world to read this book.” BISHOP DESMOND TUTU, South African social rights activist and retired Anglican bishop.

“Some people think education is about filling buckets. Peggy Taylor and Charlie Murphy know it’s more about lighting fires. Catch the Fire is an unmatched tinderbox for kindling fires of creativity. Proceed without caution. Don’t keep away from children.” ERIC UTNE, founder, Utne Reader
