Menstrual Cycle Awareness in the Creative Process

Venue: Tron Theatre, 63 Trongate, Glasgow, G1 5HB
Prices: £7 | £8.50 | £10

Amy Draper explores how to run a menstrual cycle aware process to benefit both your participants and their work. It will demystify, provide language and give confidence to talk about this.

Part of the Tron Theatre’s BUILD programme (Apr-Jul 2023)
Wed 19 July 2023, 2pm

Menstrual cycle awareness is all about people who menstruate understanding and working with, not against, the natural and consistent energies of each cycle. It’s brilliant, eye-opening and game-changing. The more Amy has engaged with this, both as a menstruator and someone who leads creative processes, the more it hasn’t made sense to exclude it from other wellbeing practices.

This workshop explores how to run a menstrual cycle aware process to benefit both your participants and the work. It will demystify, provide language to use and give confidence to talk about this, incorporating:

– Fears and taboos of bringing menstrual cycle awareness into the workplace
– The Inner Seasons – an outline of the different monthly energies
– How to harness these as an individual creative
– How to run a team or a room with this and menstrual wellbeing in mind

NOTE: All paid for workshops are eligible for Pay What You Want. As everyone’s circumstances are different, they’re aiming to make our programme of work more accessible. There is a minimum price that they can offer and one that is slightly higher, for those who can afford to pay a little extra to help support the work that they do. They also have a limited number of free spaces on offer, in response to the cost of living crisis.
