    How the group works:

    The 1st Monday meeting will feature an art workshop.  Art can take many forms, drawing, sculpture, painting, music, poetry, dance, performance, the possibilities are really endless. Through activities, guest speakers and inspiring one another, the group will explore a different art medium each workshop evening.  Topics will be selected based on the interests of the group's participants and publicized in advance. 

    The 2nd Monday meeting will feature Thrift Flip.  Have you seen the design show Flea Market Flipon HGTV...this is the same concept of taking items from The LOFT's thrift stop and reinventing them. We will give new life to items in Memorial Thrift Shop, the sales of these items support The LOFT and MUMC. 

    No artistic experience necessary
    (this is a judgement free zone, especially on yourself) and materials will be provided.

    Come and join us to let your inner artist out!

    Beyond the Pronoun

    Beyond the Pronoun is  a free, 10 week workshop series using improv to deepen connections between people across the gender spectrum.

    ________________________________________

    This is a FREE 10 week program, being held from 7-9:30pm every Tuesday from February 26th-April 30th from 7:00pm-9:30pm.
    Upstairs from The LOFT in the The Memorial Methodist United Church (250 Bryant Ave)

    Next Meetings: Tuesdays, April 2nd-30th (this is a closed group, not open to new attendees)


    ________________________________________

    About the series:

    • The first 9 weeks feature a dinner and class, the last week will be a public performance
      • Two different group members will meet at 6:00pm every week to make dinner for the group with a local chef. Group Dinner starts at 7:00pm.

    How the workshops work:

    • Each class will consist of warm-ups followed by scene work - and no prior experience is necessary, the work will be scaffolded to meet you needs and will be built upon gently and gradually. The emphasis of this improv will not be on being funny, but rather on building on what your scene partner offers.
    • Anyone who wants to bow out of a scene can do so at any time and without explanation, however, the goal is to get the whole class tuned into each other so that that doesn’t happen too often.
    • There will be a lot of work on merely being present, as well as work on building as opposed to rejecting or denying, stretching emotional repertoires and status work

    Beyond the Pronoun is free to participate, including meals, however a pre-registration conversation with the program instructor is required.
