for the event in Brighton I could offer a servicer design workshop. We'd develop a perfect service in just one session. The type of service will be chosen live. Maybe a studyprogramm, or a coffee shop. I am developing this format for my master thesis. I mapped improv principles to service design principles, so I can use warm up exercises in a way they create physical output, namely a great service concept. I keep the format accessible to non improvisors, so there are not many stage-formats. What do you think? BTW: You can find more about what I am doing here: improsign.tumblr.com
From an improv perspective, I see most of these exercises as basically different ways of doing shared story-telling, which is itself an incredibly powerful and different approach to the domains of design and management.
I'd like to do a session using a couple of selected Gamestorming exercises to illustrate and explore an improv approach to service design, and using these tools.
Thank you so much for coming to the show tonight. Asking me "what was your favourite scene?" was my favourite question of the drinks afterwards. No one (except an improviser) asks that kind of question after a show. Anyhoo on reflection my favourite scene was on top of Nelson's Column. Dx
ps either your computer is set to a different time zone or you sent your "great show" message BEFORE you saw the show :)
Thanks for the contact. Greetings! I can't see two profiles - but maybe it's my shadow showing up somewhere. I can't make the 11th - not in the UK that day (maybe my shadow will turn up, so who knows....?). Stephen
Hi Belina - thanks for following up my conversation with Paul. I would indeed like to run an AIN session on improv and facilitation, but I'm not sure when yet. I have a busy couple of months coming up, but this is something I'll come back to at the end of the year - I'll drop you a line then to explore dates with you, if that's ok.
First, thank you, and the "board of being," for the gift of my attendance.
Next, please know that the guiding rule in this universe is that one receives 10 times for each mote that is given. I have received more than my due (10 thousand for each, ten million for many, infinity for the whole.)
Finally, for now, there are those who say, or have said, that we will change the world with this or that, and it may or may not happen. When Belina Raffy says we will change the world with Improvisation it is value in the Karma bank.
Not if; when! Not when, now! Not why; because! Not how; this way as
demonstrated by the manner in which you walk - not talk - walk, on our fine earth - with grace, and greatful reverence, the sound of laughter following, surrounding, leading the what and the how, defining who we are, who we wish to be, who we are becoming, who we call to us.

AIN MONTREAL 2015 : INVITATION FOR OFFERS
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?
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.
