Using the Arts to Flip Understanding

Margot Greenlee, facilitator

When you’re on a mental “hamster wheel,” running faster doesn’t help. Slowing down, stepping to the side, and seeing from another perspective does.

In our work as faculty, practitioners, and researchers, we may find ourselves getting stuck in the same places, finding that our familiar approaches fail to move us forward. How do we refresh and jumpstart inspiration? To get “unstuck,” we need to try new perspectives and approaches. In this workshop, we use arts-based activities to open up new neural pathways. We refresh our thinking and jumpstart inspiration with poetry, visual art, and movement. This class calls upon a range of intelligences and skills inherent in us all – no formal arts training required.


Experimenting with new materials can provoke new insight.

What to expect:

*immersive, artistic exploration
*guided critical reflection
*one-on-one discussion with peers
*two hours that fly by

What you’ll get:

*a refreshed perspective on an area or question that’s important to you
*a dedicated time and space for exploring that area in new ways
