In a time when there is so much change and uncertainty, many of us are looking at charting new paths into the future. Join Vancouver-based facilitator Khari McClelland to learn creative practices for developing visions for the future. Together we will envision the individual and collective futures we want to see and consider how we can use this information as a guide to build the world we want to live in. You will come away with practical tools you can use for your own visioning and for work you may do with groups of youth or adults.

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.
The Creative Catalyst Workshops got its start thanks to a grant from the Garneau Nicon Family Foundation in Seattle, as well as support from participants like you. To ensure continued equal access to this training opportunity, we have established a Sliding Scale registration fee structure in which you choose an amount that aligns with your level of privilege or systemic barriers. The actual cost per person is $15.00 USD; no refunds.
This workshop will take place in a private and secure PYE Zoom room.

“The Live Forum gives me the chance to reflect on my facilitation work with a community of other practitioners. To be able to work through successes and failures, through case studies and examples with others, has allowed me to continue learning and growing in my facilitation."
Partners for Youth Empowerment Lead Facilitator, Uganda/USA, Graduate Student
"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.”
