Joy Fry
Alive to the interconnectivity of all beings, I am humbled to play my part in the name of LOVE. YAY for INTERPLAY!! An InterPlayer since 2006, Joy Fry has been facilitating and teaching since 2011. Her practice is informed by her enjoyment of the visual arts and by her decades of work with children, both of which convinced her of the centrality of play in self-expression and self-knowledge. She particularly appreciates InterPlay's capacity to promote individual growth and community-building at the same time, deepening participants' understandings of themselves while connecting them to one another in truly meaningful ways. She looks forward to sharing new perspectives, fresh possibilities and the sheer sensory delight that InterPlay offers.
