Co-Creation and Connection in a Time of Disconnection

Decades ago, in his book Who Shall Survive, JL Moreno wrote about the dangers of society becoming filled with robots, people not acting in
their spontaneity and creativity. Today, many of us struggle to maintain authentic connections with others in the face of modern
technology and political discord. We often stare numbly at screens or vent our frustrations on social media instead of conversing with the
people right in front of us. This workshop will help us explore what blocks us from interconnecting with others in our spontaneity and

Participants will receive a brief training about the Canon of Creativity and Moreno’s desire to interconnect “all of (hu)mankind” in healing. We will consider ways the Canon of Creativity’s warm up to spontaneity, creativity and cultural conserve parallels psychodrama’s three-part method of warm up, action and sharing. We will explore ways that we can become stuck in cultural conserves, as well as social or emotional ones, and how modern technology can trap us in repetitive, unspontaneous and addictive behavior.
After a warm up on the topic of blocks to co-creation and connection, a short psychodrama will be conducted where we will explore ways to
expand our social atoms through action. We will end the workshop with sharing and processing.
