The Body Politic 2024

Exploring the Inner and Outer Political landscape
Christine Gautreaux, MSW and Phil Porter

Online, ONLINE

1st Mondays beginning May 6th thru
Dec 2nd, 2024 - 4-5:30 pm PT (7-8:30 pm ET)

The political landscape is wild as this election year continues!

Because the story continues and imagining the future is still before us, you are invited to a 8-month series, The Body Politic 2024, led by InterPlay Co-Founder Phil Porter and InterPlay's Integrity and Innovation Coordinator, Christine Gautreaux. Let's gather as a group of body-wise players and explore the effects of the current political landscape on us and how we want to move forward.

We'll play with our fears and anxieties and our hopes and dreams. We'll see where we have consensus and where our beliefs diverge. We'll look at the big picture and the little picture and the ones in between to see where we have the power to change things and where we don't.

We'll fret together about all the fretful things and EXFORM, EXFORM, EXFORM!

Bring your storyteller, your mover and your singer along for the ride! Bring your sense of humor too! Experienced and new InterPlayers welcome. You don’t have to have attended either of the first four Body Politic rounds to join in this one. Having at least 10 people register will make this a “go.”

This series will take place on the first Monday each month, from May 6th - December 2nd, 2024 from 4-5:30 pm PT (7-8:30 pm ET).

Dates: May 6, June 3, July 1, August 5, September 2, October 7, November 4, and December 2nd

Tuition is $175-$400 sliding scale. No one turned away for lack of funds.
