With many of us moving beyond the 100th day of social isolation, what role does movement play in our lives? And in the way we interact with online groups? Join Rio de Janeiro-based movement practitioner Silvia Giovannoni, and South Africa-based environmental educator Xoli Fulyani, for a movement session designed to explore how movement can help shift our emotional state, foster connection, presence and insight. After the movement session Silvia will lead a discussion on ways to bring movement into your own life and into your work with groups.

a PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android device with a webcam, speaker and microphone
a good internet connection (call in will not be available)
power for your device to ensure that it lasts for 90 minutes
to have Zoom downloaded and updated to Version 5.0 on your device before the workshop (See our ZOOM TIPS below)
We welcome you to join the workshop 5 minutes prior to the scheduled start time so that you can get oriented and ready to participate when the meeting starts. Please be aware that the workshop will be closed to new participants 5 minutes after the session starts.
Much of this workshop will take place doing activities in breakout rooms in 5-10 minute increments, between which we will all return to the main session. Please plan to stay online during breakout groups (and, ideally for the whole workshop!) as leaving a breakout group could disrupt the activities.
Our first 11 weeks of the Creative Catalyst Workshops were made possible thanks to the Garneau Nicon Family Foundation in Seattle. To support these workshops going forward, we have established a sliding scale registration fee structure in which you choose a fee that is possible for you. To provide equal access to all, we have included an option of attending the workshop for free. Please help us keep this series going by paying what you can! Our cost per person is $15.00 USD.
This workshop will take place in a private and secure PYE Zoom room.
UPDATE TO ZOOM 5.0: This update is REQUIRED to be able to join Zoom meetings after May 30. If you haven’t updated to the latest version of Zoom, you can do so by following the steps given here.
CHANGE YOUR NAME IN ZOOM: Once you enter the workshop, consider changing your name to your preferred name, your preferred pronouns, and your location. You can do this by selecting ‘Participants’ on your toolbar, finding your name and hovering over it, clicking ‘More’, and selecting ‘Rename’.
RECORDING: This workshop will be recorded for possible promotional use; participant video will not be shared without permission. There will be no recording of private conversations in break out rooms.
INSTALL ZOOM: Before the workshop, you will need to install the Zoom app and check to make sure that your camera, speaker and microphone are working properly. For help in getting Zoom set up on your device, here are some resources:
VIDEO: When you enter the room, your video will be on; you can turn it off at any time by clicking on the camera icon.
AUDIO: All participants will be ‘MUTED’ until given permission by the facilitator. You turn your audio on and off by clicking on the microphone icon. And if you have excessive noise in your environment, please ‘MUTE’ unless you are talking.
CHAT: You can submit questions and comments to the group or directly to the facilitator through the chat feature. Click “CHAT” and a chat box will appear. Here you can view and make comments and ask questions.
IN MEETING SUPPORT: If you have technical issues once you are in the workshop, you can chat with our “SUPPORT” person privately through the chat feature and we will do our best to assist you.
"The 'Live Forum' has been immensely helpful to me. My confidence as a facilitator has increased, my connection to the greater community has grown, and I have learned so much.”
“The 'Live Forum' helps me feel connected to other social artists and deepen my practice. They understand me in a way that no one else does! I get to be celebrated and supported, and I think through the biggest issues in my work.”
Creative Facilitator, Kingston ON, Canada
“As a freelance facilitator I’ve longed for the opportunity to reflect with others. The 'Live Forums' connect me with people from all over the world doing similar work. They provide the space to reflect, investigate, and question my practice which supports me to be better at what I do.”
