In this workshop we will try to redefine personal failure and to become aware of its creative potential. We will develop the ability of accepting failure and the completely unknown as vital elements within our creative process. Then we can use this experience as a tool in our teaching environment. Games, improvisation, movement, drawings, story dramatization and creative singing are some of the tools we will be using to awake our playfulness and free ourselves from fears and judgment. The educators will then be able to further use these practical tools in the classroom. This workshop draws on the Augusto Boal Theater of the Oppressed and Creative Drama methods.

Max 12 participants.

All of us have been students and therefore shaped through education. Start a conversation on education and everyone has a story to remember from our school years. Mostly a bitter one!! A story about failure or the pressure of being successful.

But what is failure? And could it have a positive outcome? We have stigmatized failure!! Our education system has demonized mistakes and has put extreme pressure on students to achieve high levels of academic success, overriding the joys of learning and making kids anxious and depressed.

This workshop is interested in observing failure from a different angle. It questions the One Size Fits All dominant approach of an educational system which wastes children’s qualities and results in loss of individuality. If children are not allowed to make mistakes they will never fully discover their creative potential and extraordinary capacities. It is not suggested that we should encourage students to fail just to make them feel better or that making mistakes is the same as being creative. What is proposed is to simply shift the focus on process rather than finished product.
