“Creative Facilitation gave me powerful tools for leading groups and the confidence to use them!”

Creative Facilitation 1
Working with groups is by definition a creative adventure and the arts can be your greatest ally. In this two-day experiential professional development training you will gain a basic introduction to PYE’s proven arts-based model of group facilitation.
This workshop provides a framework for using arts-based practices to strengthen your effectiveness as a facilitator. Participants develop basic skills in using the arts to facilitate groups of all sizes and a large tool-box of easy to lead activities.
The training gives participants strategies for engaging a full range of learning styles and bringing out the strengths of group members. In the process, participants build their confidence in their own creativity and recognize that you don’t have to be a professional artist to use the arts in your work with people of all ages, particularly youth.
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 the general public.
