Leaders
Ginny Going
As a recovering serious person, I consider InterPlay my 12-step program and my life practice for having more ease and grace. I've worn a variety of vocational hats in my life and currently describe myself as a community artist, bodyspirit mentor and InterPlay leader. I love offering people the "big body" tools of InterPlay for telling their stories, especially people on the margins of our communities. I am also passionate about embodied spirituality, engaging people in prayer and worship forms that include and honor the body through movement, stories and song. With my partner and husband Tom Henderson, I teach and lead retreats in a variety of settings.
Tom Henderson
Tom is a certified InterPlay leader, community artist, organization development consultant and retired pharmaceutical chemist. With his wife, Ginny Going, he is co-owner of Colleagues, a business dedicated to enabling individuals and organizations to thrive. Ginny and Tom also co-direct Off the Deep End Ensemble, an InterPlay performance company founded in 1997.
Carolyn Renée
Carolyn Renée is a teaching and performing artist, InterPlay Leader, organizer and administrator. She serves humanity as an organizer, teaching artist and InterPlay Leader. Since 2006 she has been a teaching artist with Synchronicity Theatre’s “Playmaking For Girls” (PFG) program that empowers incarcerated girls, refugees, and young women in foster care through play-writing, storytelling, and theater performances. Carolyn Renée has written two plays, one of which she received funding from Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. In InterPlay, an organization that is committed to using the art of InterPlay; an art-based system to tap into the wisdom of the body and promote well-being, she has produced community showcases, taught homeless men and women, and organized racial equity and transformation workshops. She serves as a Co-Liaison Leader to InterPlay Leaders and People of Color. In May 2017, Carolyn Renée served as the lead organizer for the national InterPlay organization’s first ever People of Color Retreat. She solidified her art and activist roots in her former roles as Arts Program Director with the Mississippi Arts Commission, and Executive Director of Alternate ROOTS, a nonprofit art and social change organization for artists-activists. For a decade her work with Alternate ROOTS, and the Mississippi Arts Commission afforded her the opportunity to work closely with social change artists, art producers and presenters; the nonprofit arts community, and a myriad of arts organizations throughout the southeast United States and the District of Columbia. Serving in an organizing role she helped create undoing racism workshops, mini-festivals, learning exchanges, retreats, showcases and conferences. In September 2018, she served as advisor to the Atlanta venue of the 50,000 Lions of Justice Festival in support of youth performers for more than 50,000 youth audience participants in nine states throughout the USA. Carolyn Renée believes the work of community organizing is like riding a bicycle, or swimming—once you know how you just never forget how to create superb opportunities for connection. She uses "Carolyn Renée" as her full name.
