Definitely Not an Improv Taster

Space is limited! RSVP: https://www.meetup.com/Central-TX-Liberating-Structures-User-Group/events/248972104/ 

The connections between improv and Liberating Structures go wayyyy back--and we have long wanted to host an improv taster session for LS users. (Not that we'd do that.) Well, here we are! (No, not really. Definitely not.) Austin improv mainstay and all-around fabulous person Lee Eddy will lead us through this free, highly experimental (not-at-all-improv) session designed for improv-phobic facilitators and Liberating Structures lovers.

**Please note that this is offered at no cost, but space is limited, so we ask that you not RSVP unless you know you will attend.**

From 9-11 am, Lee will guide us through this highly interactive (definitely not) improv intro. After the session, we will indulge in some tasty snacks and debrief together about how improv may inform our own LS practice and how we want to play with improv in the future. Ends at 11:30 am.

About Lee
LEE EDDY has over 25 years of live performance and improv comedy experience, working in both Austin and NYC. Accoladed for her stage performances, she also works regularly in film (check out MUSTANG ISLAND or I DON'T FEEL AT HOME IN THE WORLD ANYMORE on Netflix), and has an extensive background in non-profit arts and community media management.

In Austin, she cut her improv gums in 2000 at The Velveeta Room and is considered a fixture in the Austin improv community. She performs regularly with her award-winning improv group, The Knuckleball Now, and has appeared onstage at The Hideout, ColdTowne Theater, and The Institution. After moving to NYC in 2007, she trained with The People's Improv Theater and was selected to be a PIT house team member, performing weekly as part of the group Whiskey Rebellion. She also joined the nationally acclaimed Story Pirates and regularly performed with them until returning to Austin in 2014.

A graduate of St Ed's, Lee has trained in the Suzuki and Viewpoints technique, the Meisner acting method, and has professionally taught acting and improv since 2005. When working with groups, Lee strives to make the learning environment safe, open, and comfortable, providing participants the opportunity to make big choices and allow them the freedom to fail successfully.

After this mini-workshop, Anna and Douglas will have fireside chat where they will explore how Liberating Structures and Design Sprint differ, what they have in common, and how they can work together to unlock even more value.

This is a great opportunity to people new to Liberating Structures, Design Sprints, or both--please feel free to share with folks who may be interested.

Liberating Structures Workshop: Learn the Rules; Bend the Rules

LINK TO REGISTRATION

Primer Wednesday, August 17th
Bend the Rules Design Studio Thursday, August 18th & Friday, August 19th

8:30 am to 5:00 pm all three days

Liberating Structures (LS) seriously and playfully disrupts conventional patterns in how we work together. A repertoire of 33 methods make it possible to immediately include, engage and unleash everyone in shaping the future together. Prepare to be surprised.

Making waves around the world, Liberating Structures (LS) changes dramatically the way results are generated without expensive investments, complicated training, or shifts in formal structure.

In this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to grow their repertoire, practice bending the rules to get spectacular results, and dive into design with a group of supportive and curious peers. When Liberating Structures are applied, many conventional approaches that people use all the time—open discussions, managed discussions, brainstorms, and presentations—become less attractive or fade away. Over time, the structures help you purposefully shape the culture of an organization and unleash the creative power of teams that work together within it.

LINK TO REGISTRATION

On the first day of this workshop, attendees will learn 10+ of the most versatile Liberating Structures and apply them in their everyday and strategic work. On the second and third day, we will practice stringing structures together, strategize on spreading innovations up & out, and give and receive help from the community of learners gathered together. We will emphasize design and application, providing time for coaching, peer consultation, and practice stringing LSs together toward a specific purpose. We encourage participants to bring specific challenges to the workshop so we can work on them together.

Coffee, tea, lunch, and light refreshments will be provided both days.

A limited number of scholarships are available. If you would like to be considered for a scholarship, please contact Jeff Mills with Alpinista Consulting.

Liberating Structures (LS) are participatory methods that disrupt conventional patterns in how we work together, revealing the collective wisdom of any team. The repertoire of 33 structures make it possible to immediately include, engage and unleash everybody in creatively shaping the future.

Wednesday, June 3, 9 am to 5 pm

Liberating Structures (LS) are participatory methods that disrupt conventional patterns in how we work together, revealing the collective wisdom of any group. The repertoire of 33 structures make it possible to immediately include, engage and unleash everybody in creatively shaping the future.
