“It was all so nourishing there is nothing I could add that would make it better then it was.” Mike, June 2023

“I loved the way the training was delivered. Thank you so much. Great facilitators – inclusive and warm – very approachable.” – Siphatisiwe, Dec. 2022

“The facilitators are so friendly, warm, generous, encouraging, inspiring and genuine. They both made it easy to ease us into the tasks with openness. A flow of information that was fed but simple to digest.” – Participant, Oct. 2023

Creative Practice Training

Our Creative Practice trainings are practical and experiential, designed to upskill and inspire youth workers, teachers, artists and therapists in facilitation skills, introducing participants to the culture and practice of LIFEbeat’s approach to youth work and group process. The training goals are stated as:
  • To explore your relationship to your creativity
  • To learn ways to build a safe learning community
  • To learn arts-based activities that enliven learning and group trust
  • To explore ways to weave a variety of art forms into a programme
  • To have fun!
Creative Practice trainings are powerful community builders that model how to embed the arts and creativity to nurture empathy, collaboration, connection and solution focused thinking. Group participants experience themselves and each other in surprising and empowering ways, meeting their limits and edges and walking away with a tool kit of practices to use in their professional lives. These trainings always nurture a desire for next steps collaborations between professionals and inspire deep enquiry around learning via reflective practice and group discussions.
