SEPTEMBER

Preview Performing the World 2016
with Lois Holzman and Dan Friedman

Friday, September 9, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
All Stars Project, 543 West 42 St. (betw. 10 & 11 Aves.)
All welcome!

The 9th Performing the World conference is our community's big fall event. Performing the World 2016 (PTW 2016) will bring hundreds of performance activists, educators, researchers, theatre artists, and youth and community organizers from countries all over the world to New York City. Launched by the East Side Institute in 2001, PTW has nurtured and grown a global movement of performance activists whose practices are a creative and developmental alternative to the old ways of doing psychology, education, community development and social justice work.

Performing the World 2016: Can We Perform Our Way to Power?
Friday-Sunday, September 23-25
All Stars Project, 543 W. 42 St. (betw. 10 & 11 Aves.)
Registration: $295

As the practice, understanding and appreciation for performance and play continue to grow, the world context in which it spreads becomes more conflicted. Globalization and the rapid spread of technology spur economic and social growth, while at the same time they produce and exacerbate poverty, war, famine, mass migrations, violence and environmental contamination. This cultural/political crossroads raises anew the question of power. How is it created? What are the limitations and where are the opportunities for ordinary people to exercise power? Increasing numbers of artists, educators, psychologists and academics are attracted to performance because of its creative power as an alternative modality to "knowing" and "authority."

Addiction is often described as the result of specific biological or genetic mechanisms that lock the body into negative patterns of behavior, uncontrollable cravings and traumatic withdrawal. The DSM-V lists thirteen categories of addition, from drug and alcohol abuse to over indulgence in internet gaming. Is how we label and talk about addiction helpful or can it get in the way of creative treatment? Is addiction inexorable, universal, and irreversible? Does it have a relationship to how we live our lives or a world spinning out of control? Join Social Therapy Group director Christine LaCerva and psychiatrist Dr. Hugh Polk as we philosophize and deconstruct our conceptions about addiction and hear stories from their social therapeutic practices about helping people diagnosed with addiction.

The East Side Institute invites you to join Russ Hamilton for a lively and experiential workshop on relational communications where participants will learn new ways to understand your connection to your content, craft, character and values - and ultimately to your audience. We will explore questions about relationships, communication and presentation, including: How do I invite the audience to inform my content? What's the difference between being seen and being looked at? And who decides? How effective is my preparation for a presentation? Please join Russ and explore new ways to learn and connect. (This workshop will run continuously, without a break. Please bring water and snacks, if needed.)

Political Revolution or a Revolution in Politics?
A Conversation with Jacqueline Salit

October Date TBD, 6:45 - 8:15 p.m.
NYU School of Law, 40 Washington Sq. So., (betw. MacDougal & Sullivan Sts.)
Registration: $35; $25 Low Income ($40; $30 at door)

In this year's presidential campaign, the American people upended politics-as-usual and challenged the elites. The Republican establishment lost control of the nominating process to the "shoot-from-the-hip" intolerance of Donald Trump. The Sanders campaign sparked a movement of young Americans calling for an alternative to the politics of greed and corruption, but settled in to support Clinton's "know-it-all" elitism. Many voters-across the spectrum-are dissatisfied, confused and upset. What can people do in the face of narrowing choices, fears of instability and division, a rigged system and a growing thirst for a better form of political life?

Discover Development NYC
A symposium, workshop & exploration of New York City's Development Community
with Lois Holzman

Friday - Sunday, October 28 - 30
Registration: $395. Limited to 10 participants.

Once the almost exclusive domain of artists and the academy, the public discourse on creativity is now filled with the voices of community organizers, entrepreneurs, educators, therapists and others exploring what creativity is and how we can develop as creative agents of social change. However, in moments of extreme crisis (e.g., war, natural disasters, intractable poverty, major illness, family distress) there is a tendency to throw creativity out the window. Traditional solutions rule the day. Creativity is ignored or considered frivolous. Can play and experimentation be used effectively to bring communities together and empower people, even under challenging circumstances? Explore methodologies and possibilities for growth in a world in crisis with community organizers and performance activists Gwen Lowenheim and David Belmont. Class will include participation by organizers on the ground on the Balkan route in Europe.

A way of life with its customs, habits, ritual, beliefs and understandings, often called culture. As the human story is told, we are all born into a culture or two and all is well and swell. Or is that just one version of culture and the human story? Does culture unfold as humans fumble and stumble through history's continuum? Do we create culture or adapt to conditions imposed by the human condition itself or whatever powers that be? Do we imitate culture just to get along? Do we transform culture in order to become more human? Or do we interrupt culture with rebel hopes to begin anew?

How can we raise children and help families in a world that is confusing and frightening to everyone? Children and parents alike are navigating the emotional and social impact of the explosion of social media, growing gender and sexual options, skyrocketing psychiatric diagnoses and medications, and shrinking economic opportunities. We want to protect children from harm, while preparing them for a future that is unknowable. What are new possibilities for helping parents and children talk to each other? How can we help the family to grow in new ways? Join Christine LaCerva, director of the Social Therapy Group, author of Social Therapy and Family Play and pioneer of an approach to multi-family groups where children lead and parents can break out of outmoded and constraining rules and roles. Learn about new methodologies that help families and therapists alike develop their creative capacities. Join a conversation on how we as mental health practitioners can help the family re-create itself in these postmodern times.

Human beings like to laugh - and laughter is good for our social, emotional, cultural and physical health. But what about those life situations - often involving families - where we seem to lose our ability to laugh far too quickly? Can we break with the same old script and "find the funny" in family (especially during the holidays)? Join comedienne Marian Rich and theater director and developmentalist Mary Fridley for a playful/philosophical exploration of finding the funny. What can we learn by using a variety of comedic forms, including improvisation, stand-up, and more, about creating humor with everything in our lives? This experiential workshop is open to everyone (new- and old-timers alike) - and especially those for whom being lighter-hearted is no laughing matter.
