Please join UNH Cooperative Extension and NH Listens to experiment with the power of interactive practice in sticky facilitation moments.

This workshop will benefit facilitators at all levels. We will work with UNH Theatre professor David Kaye and his group, PowerPlay Interactive Development, to gain new insights, techniques and skills. I hope you will join us as at one of the two sessions as we dig into those heart racing moments. This workshop is offered for a fee of $25 payable after registration.
