Still Point artists conduct theatre and music classes with developmentally disabled adults at multiple sites around the Chicagoland area. Programs include regular performances, exposing audiences to the humor and artistry of these remarkable men and women. Through the Imagination Workshop, Still Point cultivates greater community integration, seeking to break stereotypes and reduce stigmas associated with disability.
The Imagination Workshop is Still Point’s longest-running outreach program. Using dance, movement, music, comedy, and improvisation, our Facilitators provide a space in which individual expression is encouraged and celebrated. By discovering and developing each participant’s unique gifts, and then combining efforts to create a play, communication and social skills are enhanced. Self-esteem increases as members serve the community through performances, and take pride in their contributions.
Significantly, these benefits have been measured and documented through the use of a program evaluation rubric developed with the Adler School of Psychology. The Imagination Workshop develops important skills that enhance participants’ quality of life.
