Studies show that creative expression reduces stress and trauma, increases the immune response, and fosters personal well being and group connection. Each Creative Catalyst workshop demonstrates how to use creative expression for your own well being as well as to deepen the impact of any work you may do with groups of youth or adults, online or in person. No previous experience is required to benefit from these workshops.

By participating, you can expect to:

  • Increase your confidence in your own creativity
  • Increase your personal well-being
  • Learn activities that can be used to increase social/emotional literacy and life skills for youth and adults
  • Experience the power of well-facilitated on-line learning programs

REGISTER: You need to register to receive the Zoom link for the workshop. See the list of offerings to get registered.

FEE: 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 (Payment Policy).

PLATFORM: Zoom – You will need a good internet connection, a webcam, speakers and a microphone in order to fully participate. You do not have to have a Zoom account to participate.

FORMAT: All of our workshops are experiential and interactive. You will spend time with the facilitator in the large group, as well as, time to reflect in small groups with folks from around the world. When participating, plan to stay online during breakout groups (and, ideally for the whole workshop!) as coming late or leaving the session early will disrupt the activities.
