Perspectives is an on ongoing series of interviews and check-ins with recipients of our Artist Research and Development Grant (ARDG). Today we speak with 2017 ARDG recipient Amy Carpenter and her creative partner Stacey Reed Hanlon.

In January 2017, Carpenter was awarded an Artist Research and Development Grant in support of this work. This past spring Carpenter and Hanlon conducted the first round of their workshops. A second round will be held this Fall.

Recently, we spoke with Carpenter and Hanlon about their work.

If you have a teen on the autism spectrum who might be interested or benefit from these workshops, you can register at www.conductedstories.com/workshops or email conductedstories@gmail.com.

Workshops are limited to 10 participants and will be held on September 16th, October 21st, November 18th and December 16th from 2:00 – 3:30 PM.These workshops will focus on the basics of improvisation, while also using improvisational games to promote awareness of social and emotional cues. Understanding that making eye contact and having meaningful social interaction is often difficult for this population, this series of workshops will focus on playfulness, supporting each others’ ideas and celebrating all contributions, both verbal and non-verbal. Participants are encouraged to attend all four workshops with a parent or caregiver.
