Encounters with Privilege

Encounters with Privilege

In this short workshop we will draw on tools from applied theatre and Nonviolent Communication to make sense of participants’ experiences of encounters with privilege.
– Introduction & Warm-up to get the group connected and the creative juices pumping;
– A short improvised play which is based on an interpretation of a participant’s experience with what they have understood as an encounter with privilege (which they voluntarily and generously share with the group);
– A facilitated conversation where we draw inspiration from Nonviolent Communication to analyse what happened and edit the play by introducing new scenes, to take the story in different directions, and improvisationally and empathically explore our individual and collective responses;
– We may do more than one play if time permits;
– Closing discussion.
