UnHumble: How to Stop Playing Small and Be a Badass
Taught by Amy Nielson
Amy is a museum educator and theatre-maker. She encourages the reawakening of our primal ability to communicate through body and voice, and the building of stronger communities through storytelling.
Trained as a director and choreographer, she holds a BFA from Marquette University and MFA from Mills College. She co-runs a theatre ensemble called BrickaBrack, that makes original, audience-interactive work. She is also currently a public docent at the New Museum, after spending many years as an educational docent with SFMoMA. (Children are the best art-lookers!)
As a facilitator for the Engaging Educator, Amy enjoys when students have an a-ha moment! This could be when an idea really sinks in, when someone makes a discovery, or especially when they surprise us all, including themselves. Seeing someone shed their patterns or habits, step away from themselves, even just for a moment, and bring forth something new, is a very exciting thing.
Have you accomplished something amazing lately and you feel like you can’t share the happiness fully? Or maybe you find yourself playing small, taking risks that aren’t making an impact on your personal and professional life? Are you happy with the level of confidence you feel and exude?
It isn’t. And we all should be proud of each other.
If you connect with this and want to stop playing small and bring out your inner badass, join us for this interactive and improv-based workshop that will help you feel more confident, stop feeling bad about talking about your accomplishments and get you ready to jump into your next big risk and adventure. We’ll explore ideas of affirmation and elevation, both for ourselves and those around us, use Yes, And to accelerate ideas, and explore and uplift Ann Friedman’s and Aminatou Sow's idea of Shine Theory.
Surround yourself with other amazing people and by shining together, we’ll all be brighter.
The session on July 18 is co-ed!
