Presenter: Juliet Diener

The dancing body: a catalyst for creativity, learning and wellbeing

As we experience the world around us, we often find ourselves locked inside our heads, overwhelmed with thoughts and then challenged with the task of finding the words to share these thoughts. This is particularly difficult for those living with varying disabilities where verbal expression can be limited and does not necessarily match internal experiences. Working with our body offers ways of relating to and with each other that does not require words, connects to our unspoken internal processes, and provides a means to bridge the divide between abled and disabled. This presentation will share examples from a unique approach developed at icandance, a creative therapeutic community for children and young people with disabilities and their families through inclusive dance practice. It will offer insights into how working with the body as a communicative tool and emotional resource can connect communities, nurture creativity, and overcome barriers to building an inclusive society.

Attendees should be in a space that will allow a small amount of movement and have paper and pens/markers to offer some creative response.

This presentation will take place on Zoom. After booking you will receive an email with the link and passcode a few days before the event.
