Find your Voice as an Educator: NZ Improv Festival 2017

I am so thrilled to be delivering a workshop to fellow creatives in the NZ Improv Festival. Find your voice as an educator. 

Nurturing the spark in you.

Perfect for anyone wishing to identify their own teaching style

This is a workshop that will explore techniques and methods to find your own voice as an educator. When we educate it comes from the heart and soul; it’s an offering we make to other people. We share a perspective about the world and the work that we do, work that drives us and gives us passion and cause.

In this workshop we will explore:

  1. - The fundamentals of what makes up a good lesson.
  2. - Planning and mapping out course structure.
  3. - Going with the flow and making adjustments as you go.
  4. - Living to your values and living what voice speaks through your work.
  5. - Mindfulness for assessment, checking in and reflection.
  6. - Building mentorship and leadership opportunities from within the company, sharing the love of what you do.

 

“This workshop really helped me to identify what I have to offer and ground me as an educator.” - Rachel Nankivell

Alpha Performs At St John of God

Alpha Performs At St John of God

We rocked up to St John of God on Friday to celebrate the "Stories of change, resistance or resolution". What would you do if your body was on a physical course that you just couldn't change? Would you give into the experience and face the inevitable or would you resist with all your soul? 

What about the things that matter at the heart of it all... Can I make friends? Will I find a safe space to be and will I find I ever be free to make my own choices and to go about as I will?

Stories of our true self are hard to share but also glorious to celebrate, the unsaid, the barely thought about and the most rebellious inner thoughts that have to be told. 

Playback in real time. Our stories matter.

Can't keep me "Quiet" my musical adventures

It's a glorious thing to be a part of change. To shake your fist, make your stand and use your voice.

It started with a song at the Women's March on Washington in January.

This video came across my Facebook feed and I felt so inspired by this beautiful work. So did my friend Carol Shortis. As look would have it, in my work with Voice Arts Trust, I was looking for a fellow Song Leader to lead a song for International Women's day. 

And so started this amazing roller coaster I have been riding with the many other incredible women in Wellington and around the world. 

We have sung at Parliament for Women from all over NZ, in protest at its very gates for International Women's day, Pride week and Wellington Help. Plus many more I have not been able to attend.

Here are some snippets of our work.
