About Arthur's Workshop
This week-long playshop provides beginning and advanced drum circle facilitators the skills needed to lead Rhythm-Based events for groups of all sizes and backgrounds. This week-long experience will immediately connect facilitators to a supportive international community while providing extensive opportunities to learn and develop facilitation skills in a safe environment. Participants of all levels will receive peer, mentor and advanced Facilitator support. This week goes beyond the weekend training with the presentation of more techniques, developing style, increasing depth, and extensive practical experience.
Participants receive extensive practice in the facilitation techniques needed to lead a drum circle or rhythm event for a variety of populations and group sizes. The program format will include group instruction and discussions combined with small group break-out exercises that reinforce the learning of the foundational facilitation elements presented. Exercises are taught sequentially so as to become progressively more complex as the facilitators’ skills develop throughout the week. Participants experience multiple small group activities using movement, voice, musical instruments, and improvisational rhythm games.
Fees include transport to and from Kuala Lumpur, all meals, accommodations, late-night drumming by the fire, and training by Arthur Hull. Drums will be provided, but feel free to bring your own.
