When: Sat & Sun April 26-27, 2014
Where: Oakland, CA, USA


Calling all Bay Area Change-Makers!

Working with groups is a creative challenge and the arts can be your ally! Join Partners for Youth Empowerment, international leaders in the field of creative facilitation, to learn powerful ways to use the arts to build strong teams, empower voice, encourage dialogue and increase impact with the groups you work with. This will be an opportunity to build and grow together across sectors. No arts experience required, artists welcome!

This is the first level training in a 2-part series and is complimented by Creative Facilitation 2 which is being held on November 1-2. While Creative Facilitation 1 introduces models and techniques for bringing the arts into your work, Creative Facilitation 2 is all about you as a facilitator.

Join us and Learn:

  • Ways to build trust and respect in a group
  • Ways to open space for dialogue about issues that matter to your participants
  • Meaningful arts-based group activities in an easy-to adapt experiential model
  • Ways to create the conditions for a transformative experience
  • Strategies to ignite your own creativity and find new joy and energy in your work

Who is it For?

This workshop is for anyone who works with groups of youth or adults as well as for people who simply want to enhance their own creativity: youth workers, educators, artists, trainers, facilitators, business leaders, and social change makers of all kinds.

“This training helped me discover a whole new world of possibilities in facilitation and group dynamics that I am excited to explore in my work” Manuel Maqueda Founder & Director, KUMU
