What will I learn?


So, you have an idea... or a movement brewing! How do you engage, enlist and empower others?

Discover and refine your passion and message. This might be a campaign, a product launch, a dialogue you want to foster. Come with a hunch and we’ll help you refine and articulate it.

You’ll draw from social science research paired with performance craft to learn techniques to broaden your authentic behavioral range. Explore different mediums for delivery, inspired by the acting and performance world. This might take the form of a traditional speech, a community event, performance art, film or video.

Craft your communication and receive performance coaching to hone your delivery. Show up in a community venue to deliver your creative performance. Designer. Performer. Citizen.
