Soul crushing creative blockage defense class
Part I of the workshop series focuses on identifying and untangling various creative blockages that prevent us from accessing our truest most inspired places. These beasts can take many forms – from blocks that are reinforced culturally to just old crap we carry around with us. Learn some new tools to get through these thorny SPIRIT blockages and move THROUGH with your ART.
Getting ideas out
All of our cups overrunneth with information, ideas, emotions, concepts, visual wonders, memories, passions, politics, – and sometimes it is hard to access these gems, let alone shape them into something that can be “seen” clearly. Part II of our workshop series will introduce some writing exercises to get into these conceptual file cabinets and play with what’s in there.
Physical rubberbanding it
As a performer – we have one tool. Our brains. Just kidding. Our bodz! That means we have to practice getting out of the the mind and into the bod. Part III is about physicalizing aspects of the discoveries made in Parts I and II of the workshop. Let’s work it out!
Self producing productions
Sometimes its very difficult to find a spot to present your brilliant opususus (opusi?). Many of us don’t want to necessarily present in conventional performances spaces. Or there just simply are not enough spaces that suit our needs. Or we just can’t find something! Learn how to produce your own show. We will look at all the details of self producing in its imperfect glory: finding a space, programming a solid event, social media outreach, contracts, dealing with $, working with friends, where to buy cheapest La Croix.
While most WCCW programming is free or donation-based, with no one turned away for lack of funds, we do offer some workshops that have fees associated. This covers materials and allows us to pay the leaders of these workshops for their time and expertise, and to put a small percentage back into WCCW. This income, in addition to memberships, is what lets us keep the doors open and the lights on. We want to make programming as accessible as possible to anyone who is interested though, so we also offer volunteer opportunities and free community tickets to each event or workshop (number varies depending on capacity of the class). Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or to find out more about this opportunity for a specific event.
