Join Blaine Swen, Loyola philosophy PhD alum and creator of The Improvised Shakespeare Company, for a fun and interactive communications workshop.

For over 12 years The Improvised Shakespeare Company (ISC) has been making people laugh all over the world by performing improvised plays right on the spot. To create a play spontaneously, they must work effectively as a team in a pressured environment. The group work, communication, and problem-solving skills that ISC employs are also essential skills for humanities graduate students to cultivate. In this workshop, Blaine and members of the ISC team will lead participants in various exercises that emphasize the importance of active listening, communication, support, working as a team, confidence, and creativity.

This is a great opportunity to enhance your communication and teamwork skills in a fun and supportive environment!
