Sponsored by the Alan Klass Program in Health and Humanities

The new Interprofessional Health, Arts, and Humanities program offers Rady Faculty of Health Sciences faculty, staff, and students arts and humanities programming that enhances well-being and improves patient care. Workshops can be taken individually or as part of the new Certificate in Health, Arts, and Humanities.

This four-week class is an opportunity to delve into a creative writing practice that will offer you the chance to reckon with curiosity, creative risk-taking, vulnerability, lateral and imaginative thinking, and serious play. All levels of experience are welcome; people new to a creative practice are especially encouraged to join. For the duration of the class, we will creatively and collectively think through this time we find ourselves in. How do we invigorate our imaginative risk-taking and feel ok-ish about not knowing what we’re doing in our writing? How can we collectively create a space that is rich with possibility? And how can we recharge each other so that we feel more aligned with our creative selves in order to better engage with this singular time and with each other? This workshop will include time for discussions, writing exercises and will provide space for us to remember how good we feel when we’re creatively engaged. 

Zoom login information will be sent to webinar registrants prior to the event.

Please note there will not be class on November 9.
