Building Creative Communities Conference (BCCC)
Colquitt, GA January 28-31, 2016
2016 is the 10th anniversary celebration of the Building Creative Communities Conference in Colquitt. The theme is Celebrating Creative Community Leadership.
Leaders who have attended previous conferences will be present to exhibit and share the revitalizing and transforming work they are doing in their communities.
Participants in the conference will be part of story-bridge work using theatre as the container and orchestrated by Richard Geer, of whom it is said that his work is “healing troubled communities with the magic of theatre.” Janet Sanders will be leading one of the principal sessions focusing on the Art of Social Change.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Vaughan Grisham, whose most recent research has centered on Extraordinary Results in Ordinary Communities. His life work has been focused on leadership and community development. Some of the facilitators and leaders who will bring their wisdom and experience to the conference are Joy Jinks, Karen Kimbrel, Margaret Ashmore, Tannur Shewritz Ali, Agnes Furey, and Audri Scott Williams. An incredible bonus of participating in BCCC is to experience a performance of Swamp Gravy, Georgia’s Folk Life Play on the first evening of the conference.
For a first-hand experience of Social Artistry in Action, come celebrate at the BCCC, and make plans to attend one or both of the Social Artistry training programs before and after the conference.
Preceding the BCCC
Introduction to Social Artistry Leadership
January 26-28-,2016 Colquitt, GA
This 2-day training is more than a solid introduction to Social Artistry. You will engage in and learn to employ all manner of latent human capacities — sensory and physical, psychological and relational, mythic and symbolic, and spiritual and integral. You can expect that these processes will expand your inner and outer ways of being, that you will become more creative, more imaginative, and more finely equipped to deal with the many challenges of life. This training is a prerequisite to participating in the Introduction to Train the Trainer program.
Following the BCCC
Introduction to Trainer the Trainer Program
