So much of activists work is about communication, about the ability to hear what people need and somehow respond to those needs. It's also about helping them understand something and try to get them to support a specific cause. In all that there's also a lot of pressure on being constantly creative, innovative and in search of new and exciting ways of doing our job. All of those things require specific skills which we often lack or have maybe forgot how to use consumed by the everyday flood of responsibilities and deadlines. And this is where improv exercises can come to the rescue - how to tune in to what the other person is saying? How to truly listen to others and not just to think you do but really just waiting for the right moment to express your opinion? How to get rid of different personas we carry with us that sometimes keep us from going out of our bubbles and keep us in the same track of thought and behavior?
Listen to a converstion with Weronika Nockowska and Karolina Norkiewicz - improv performers from Comedy Club in Warsaw - to learn a little bit more about improv itself and how can it help activists think differently about their job and make them better at it.
