Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston who rose to fame from her Ted talk on The Power of Vulnerability. She’s spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. We’ll be playing with her wisdom – gamified through improvisation – and taking the time to talk about what we notice in ourselves as well as our work.
This workshop will be followed by a special show Flock’s Fantastic Friend – with Katy Schutte at NDSM Café. Stick around, grab a drink and join this unique and special show!
Sunday June 18 — 10:00 to 16:00 (1h lunch break)
