THE C WORD: A WORKSHOP ON CRITICISM BY THE FARM

THURSDAY, 23 February 2017 | 1.00pm - 3.00pm | JWCOCA The Shopfront

What is criticism? How does it feel to receive it? How does it feel to dish it out? We all know it’s important but more often than not we don’t know how to communicate or we’re devastated when someone else does. This is a workshop for all of us who avoid the bar after the show even though we could really do with a beer. We’ll make a playful and safe space to learn how to share and communicate in constructive ways without just complimenting the lights. Together we will make a case for feeding back and find a way we can all enjoy those post show drinks.

“Criticism is something you can easily avoid by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” - Aristotle

Duration: 2 hours
