Hi, Jay! Welcome to the AIN and the Midwest group.

Welcome to the AIN!

If you're new to this site or the concept of Applied Improv, you should probably start by first visiting this FAQ page to get your basic questions answered. Please see this guide for tips on how to use the AIN site. You can also watch video tutorials on using this site.

You have from now until the Monday, May 11th to make a (or several) delightful offers for our tribe’s conference. Again, ’Back to Nature’ is our theme for this 2015 AIN conference. Life on earth is creative, playful, and always improvising. In that sense, being connected to nature is being connected to our whole being, with all of our creative, playful and improvisational capacities. How does your work connect with that?

More info can be found on the AIN Conference Website


Time: September 24, 2015 at 5pm toSeptember 27, 2015 at 5pm
Location: Montreal, Canada

AIN External Website

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

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.

Support the AIN!
