Lead researchers Rebecca Caines and Michelle Stewart completed a successful outreach trip to Yukon and British Columbia, taking the Improv Toolkit on the road for feedback, and making new connections for the project’s next stages.
Whitehorse, Yukon has been selected to be the Canada site for the international improvisation project exploring strengths and creativity for people with disabilities.
Researchers visited Whitehorse in July and worked with FASSY (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Society of Yukon) who is a partner on the project. The researchers demonstrated workshops to a range of agencies and families. The workshops, based on the Community Improv Toolkit, use theatre, music, visual arts, improvised games and creative technologies including iPad apps to help people communicate, share their stories, make art and share their experiences.
