What is an AIN Conference all about?
Have you seen the exciting Youtube video starring Alan Alda, Barbara Tint, and the AIN Team? It is official! The Applied Improvisation Network announces … The AIN World Conference!
Here are some things you can expect to get out of the event:
* Introduction to the AIN and Applied Improvisation with a Learning Journey
* Exposure to many of the different fields in which improvisation practices are being applied through talks and workshops
* Instant access to and integration into a vast network and international community of Applied Improvisation facilitators and practitioners
* A chance to learn from lots of different people, many of whom are high profile speakers, facilitators, coaches, trainers
* A chance to learn from people who have built their careers in other fields and are now applying improvisation within their respective organization or profession in innovative ways
* Connection to other ‘starters’ who are in the same boat as you
* Tons of fun, laughter, shows, chances to play, sing, dance, experiment
As you are curious about where your Applied Improvisation journey might lead you, this will be a great chance to discover who your peers are/will be and to see whether this is indeed a path you wish to take and what the Network might offer you to support you along the way.
Roughly 40% of the conference attendees tend to be ‘first timers’ while half are returners, and some come every year to refresh and reconnect with their colleagues and friends.
Furthermore, you’ll find that the whole conference is being put together by people who are volunteering their time (thank you!!!!) and are therefore creating an event that they themselves want to attend.
