Workshop Activities: Experience

> Back to workshop activities menu


These experience activities are great for introducing people to new experiences that they might not have felt they were capable of. It’s important to build up to these activities and to have used some effective icebreakers before you get started.

If you have any of your own workshop activities that you would like to add then drop by our Facebook page and let us know. We’re always on the hunt for new ideas.

One of our all-time favorite theater games. This is useful to open up the storytelling voice. 

Group Sculptures
This is a great way to explore issues using body expression.
