What is InterPlay?
InterPlay is a practice that invites us to play with our birthright practices of movement, song, voice, storytelling, dance, and stillness to connect more deeply with our inner body wisdom and to build connection through community. InterPlay as a social movement is dedicated to ease, incrementality and human sustainability - noticing what feels good in the body and seeking to create more moments based on this knowledge.

Art & Social Change offers a chance to:
• Share and reflect on our experiences as people passionate about the intersection of art and social change
• Plug into a community that cares deeply about the world, the earth, each other, and is a true reflection of what equity means
• Explore the transformative power of play through entirely new and ancient ways of knowing, honoring ourselves and our ancestors along the way
• Tune into our innate artistic gifts, nurture our capacities, and explore what supports us most along our journey of community and social justice
