PlayfulMen - a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Facilitated workshop
PlayfulMen - Unbox Yourself one brick at a time...
About this event
PlayfulMen is an incredibly powerful facilitated workshop using the Lego® SeriousPlay® methodology designed to start a conversation about who we are as men in a fun playful way. This workshop is open to all men from all backgrounds.
Purpose of this event
The workshop is designed as an exploration of self through a series of challenges set by the facilitator. Each challenge leads to a build to express your thoughts and ideas around the topic. The outcome is then shared with the group to gain better insight on how other individuals understand and experience the same challenge. It ultimately leads to a better understanding of self, each other and what we all have in common.
The event takes place around a table of up to 10 participants. LEGO® bricks are provided to solve the various challenges. This event is approximately 6-7 hours long, depending on the number of participants. A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Do I need to be a LEGO® Master Builder?
No! Not at all! The bricks are there to provide a visual representation of thoughts. They're there to be used as a tool. You build what you want based on the challenge. No need for a masterpiece.
Is this for me?
This event is open to all men above the age of 18 interested in a platform to express themselves in a fun playful environment through purposeful play. This event is open to members of all communities, as it transcends sexual identity and communicates on a fundamental male level.
What to bring
All you need to bring is an open mind and a sense of adventure.
What to wear
Comfortable clothes (dress warmly in winter).
