Libprov! Expanding Workplace Skill Sets Through Workshops on Improvised Comedy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cost: $35, add to your Conference Registration

Nervous about that upcoming vendor negotiation? Worried about that talk you’re giving at Charleston? Unsure about how to communicate your services to patrons? Gain confidence with the uncertain and the nerve-wracking by trying a little improv! Improvisation is not just about making people laugh. At its core is a practice that teaches effective communication and listening skills by empowering players to confidently own and share their objectives.

The Charleston Conference is partnering with Washington, D.C.-based long-form improv troupe, Sistine Robot, to offer a beginner improv workshop on Wednesday November 6 as part of the Charleston Preconference schedule. We will be using improv games and skills to:
  • Develop confidence addressing a group/communicating a message
  • Manage nerves in uncomfortable situations
  • Take control over challenging encounters
  • HAVE FUN/LAUGH/LEARN 

Come in a librarian and leave a LION while having fun with colleagues and friends. This session is completely interactive and requires participation from all attendees. This is a safe space to have fun, be silly, and PLAY! Bring water and comfortable clothing for moving around. Heels/dresses are not recommended. An open mind and a love of laughter are!
