Join Brave Practice for our 2023-24 season kickoff

An improv theatre workshop, Stories of Bravery

Join us Sunday, October 15 from noon to 3pm at ASHHO Cultural Community & Job Training Center for an all-ages theatre workshop focused on community-building, leadership, and learning how to use theatre for social change.


What does bravery mean to you? When have you practiced bravery in your everyday life, in big and small ways? How can you cultivate the vulnerability necessary to do hard things, like lead, learn, make mistakes, and maintain integrity and community accountability? Whether you are looking to practice courage on-stage or off, we're excited to listen deeply, share true stories, lean into community wisdom, and take some brave risks with you!

This is the first in a series of theatre workshops we will offer with ASHHO. Keep an eye out for upcoming dates with sessions throughout the school year for middle schoolers, high schoolers, young adults, and intergenerational groups.

Brave Practice is a community resource for storytelling and deep listening. Founded in 2021 through Window Seat, we are a collective of theatre artists who use Playback Theatre and other theatre-based techniques to foster connection, inclusion, and belonging locally. We serve a beautiful, diverse, intergenerational, and multicultural community within and connected to the South Sound region. With us, you'll practice empathy, express yourself, collaborate with others, and explore your own gifts and potential. During this workshop, you'll become familiar with techniques in Playback Theatre, a kind of improv theatre where people share true moments from their lives and others play them back on the spot.

No previous theatre experience is necessary to participate! "All-ages" is inclusive of community members who can actively participate and benefit from this experience in a community setting. We cannot provide childcare during this experience, however, the children's room at ASHHO is a resource. Email us if you have wonderings about yourself or someone you are considering registering, with their consent.


This workshop is supported by an Arts in Education grant from ArtsWA, with the goal of enriching local arts offerings and accessible community programming. Community donations are gladly accepted to support the continuation of this program. We encourage those who are able to make a contribution to support our ability to make this offering accessible to all.

Please register ahead of time if you are able so that we can determine how much food is needed.
