Our mission... which we chose to accept, and so should you!
Our mission is to turn work into play - to offer a highly engaging, fun and playful collaborative experience - to help individuals and organizations gain the skills and information needed to cultivate and nurture creativity and innovation.
The work involved is analogous to an athlete training in the gym. Where a runner might use weights to build leg muscles, we use improvisation exercises and theater games to strengthen communication, social-emotional skills and collaborative techniques to help participants reach their full collective creative potential and nurture it to new heights. And like an athlete, the more one exercises and stretches their creative and communication muscles, the stronger, more accessible and reliable they become.
