Join us for virtual workshops

Workshops have been running since the start of February but anyone can join each week.  This series is part of our Faciliator Training program, where two of our members, Anna and Carlota will be leading the workshops and developing their facilitation skills with you!

For the next three weeks (until 11th March) our member Carlota will be facilitating six sessions, where we will get to explore our experiences of communication, language and  home.  Over 3 weeks we will be developing how to share these ideas over zoom to a small invited audience.  We are back to our usual workshops on TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS.

As always, the workshops will be supported by the Many Minds team, including our lovely volunteers.

The sessions this week are:

Tuesday 2nd March 6-8 PM. Doors open at 5:45 PM.

Many Minds Virtual Space Holders

Members have come up with some things to keep everyone safe in the online workshops. We have called them our Virtual Space Holders. Please have a read if you are joining the workshops. We make these as a group so if you have any ideas for things that need to be added, let us know in the workshops!

  • Support and respect each other throughout the workshop.

  • Welcome new people to the session and make them feel comfortable.

  • Be non-judgmental and understanding.

  • No racism, sexism, ageism (or any of the other prejudice ‘isms’)!

  • Be aware of how your words and actions might affect others.

  • If you have any tasks that you need to do that are not related to the workshop, eg. vacuuming, watching TV, arranging wardrobe, please mute and turn camera off or away from you.

  • Save snacking for the break and keep drinks to a minimum whilst workshop is happening.

  • No drinking alcohol / taking drugs during the session. Come in a state to engage. If you are deemed too intoxicated to participate, you may be asked to leave and join again the following week.

  • Wear at least one layer of clothing if you can be seen by others on camera.

  • Be aware of your background on camera.

  • Mute yourself if you are going to move the camera around.

  • Minimise background noise when unmuted.

  • Choose a user name that you are happy to be identified by the rest of the group when you join the session.

  • Listen to others. Try not to talk over each other. Be aware that that might be a delay on Zoom so this might be unintentional. Allow time people to speak.

  • Try to resolve any issues that arise as a group.

  • Feel free to leave and rejoin the workshop and participate in the way you can.

  • Save phone calls for the break. If you need to take a phone call, mute yourself and turn off your camera.

  • Have fun!
