I am new to AIN as well. Would anyone be interested in meeting up in mid-town/chelsea for drinks one evening?

Hi - I am actually based in Boston (and will be working from the UK until September), but NY is not that far, and I will try to get to some meetings...
In the meantime, my interest is in organizational improv, especially within the project management domain...

I am excited at the prospect of being able to help others and make money using improvisation. Would anyone be interested in meeting up with me for a drink to share ideas/stories?

I am in Toronto, but visit NYC most years. I would be interested in connecting to NY members that are up near the great lakes. My interests include sustainable development programs that use applied improv to explore community issues. Just finished a project called "Capturing the Unspoken" where we integrated a recording framework into existing school improv workshops in Ingwavuma, South Africa.

Mention AIN NYC for a $100 automatic discount on this inspiring class!

Character Mask to Clown--with Deborah Kaufmann
Inspired by the teaching of Richard Pochinko
A multi-disciplinary way for any artist to make direct connection to aspects of his/her true self, for devising material and performance. In the spirit of playfulness we will face the six directions of self: North, West, South, East, Above and Below, by painting, sculpting masks with clay, dancing, singing, improvisation, character investigation and writing. All six masks are combined to create a persona that is unique, with a deeply personal mythology and imagined environment.
For artists in all disciplines and the seriously curious.
“I highly recommend this workshop to people interested in the deep exploration of their own imagination, impulse and memory...” NYC student 
January 8-February 9 (five weeks: Su, M , Tu) more than 55 hours of class time
$800  Work Study and Scholarship Available
Maximum 10 Students

This workshop is ideal for all facilitators of Applied Improv, whether you are experienced or new to the field. You will be expertly guided through the process of using song as a metaphor, both to help you clarify your purpose and to give you tools to use in your own projects.

AIN External Website

We have created and launched a new website to promote Applied Improvisation to prospective clients -

As you know, we already have a great website for talking to each other: this new site is for us to talk to the world, letting people know the value that AI practitioners can bring to organisations and communities, as trainers, facilitators and inspirers of creativity. It also has a sensational new logo, thanks to our very own Bård Brænde.

Please take a look here, let us know how to improve the site, and recommend it to any potential clients you can think of.  If you’d like to be listed on the site as a Practitioner, then check out the sign-up process on the discussion linked to this email here.
