“Imagination and creativity is the only weapon in the war against reality”

90 minutes


The importance of the role of creativity and the imagination in challenging and transcending the constraints of the everyday world can never be underestimated. Creativity can be a tool to navigate and reshape reality in our classrooms through gently bringing joy your teaching, your classroom and yourself.

When “creative mojo” is rediscovered, it enables us to generate new, exciting ideas, take risks, and bring a fresh unique perspective to our work. Understanding oneself and ones’ perspectives is essential for channeling unique and authentic creative expressions.

In this workshop, “re-finding” your creative mojo assists participants to build capacity and well-being through a series of varied and gentle practical activities aligned to discussion of strategies to awaken creative curiosity by looking into the mirror of their own teaching practice, so they can reimagine and reignite their love for teaching drama.

Finding our creative mojo is the Universe calling us back to then truth of who we are. It is an experience that servies as a wakeup call to the lifen we truly want.
