Grey Box Collective's Play in the Grey Patreon is a virtual community for trauma-informed movers, educators, and art leaders committed to divesting from old systems and societal norms and are ready to invest in the evolution of the organization, their communities and themselves. Each month, Grey Box Collective's Founder and Creative Producer, Molly W. Schenck, will host 6-hours of live classes focused on: Somatic Movement Technique, Trauma-Informed Creative Practices, Play in the Grey Philosophy, and Creative Tools and Practices. More information is available below and on our Patreon Page.
Why 'Play in the Grey'?
Play in the Grey (PitG) is a phrase used to summarize what it is to engage in making art about the messy parts of life. The phrase has been used in previous workshop series by Grey Box Collective. The emphasis on playing is to center being in the process and trusting that the content discussed in workshops will allow individuals to discover the way on the way. Play on this platform can be considered a vehicle for learning.
