Gwynneth VanLaven

Certified InterPlay Leader

Gwynneth VanLaven is an artist and educator in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She uses InterPlay with values of inclusivity and accessibility. Her experiences with illnesses and a disabling accident heighten her awareness of resilience of all kinds. She plays not as erasure but a dance deeply woven in challenge and delight. VanLaven’s existent art practice responds to ills like ableism, mental health stigma, body disparagement, and othering. Gwynneth holds special care for body autonomy and body attentiveness, so safety in play can be both deliciously awkward and embodying. InterPlay will be a powerful tool toward participants’ growth and the artful forging of community? with humor, curiosity, and joy.
