Social Business Meeting

Saturday, May 20/17
1-3:30pm, Creative City Centre
$25 + GST or PWYC*
All Ages – Max of 15 participants;

The Art of Listening 

How can can we heal ourselves, our relationships, and our communities with the art of active listening? How are emotional labour practices within arts communities shaped by misogyny and the fear of femininity?

Healthy communities are built upon healthy relationship skills. As a key aspect of communication, active listening can contribute to intimacy and care while minimizing defensiveness and conflict. An arts-based presentation, discussion, and experiential exercise will provide participants with concrete tools to strengthen listening skills applicable to creative work, every-day social interactions, and situations in which loved ones are in need of support.
