Welcome to the LA CREATIVE GAMES COMMUNITY!
Drop-In Community Activities Gatherings --
& other Classes, Practice Groups, Circles, Events, etc... in WEST LA!
Join us for the kind of hilarious, creative, get-to-know-you games & activities that you’d share w/friends at a summer party! We host our gatherings outdoors whenever it's warm enough, & focus on MOVEMENT GAMES --so we get some playful exercise & are not sitting the whole time, though we intersperce things w/some seated games, ---& everyone is welcome to share their favorites!
We play Improv Games, Parlor Games, 'New Games', Surrealist Games, Party Games, 19th Century Play-party games, Relay Races, Creative Connective Get-To-Know-You Games, (& occasionally some gatherings running around with super silly, super zany, senseless ridiculousness!...), etc! :) Games that involve social interaction, being active or not spending the whole time sitting, engage imagination--using mind & senses in new/unaccustomed ways; or some which give the mind a break to refresh & JUST use senses/ exercise our body with sound, movement, &/or touch; + sometimes even play with intuition :) Also workshop-like activities/games for inspiration & to explore, exercise, expand the limits of our individual & collective human potentials, mind body & spirit. Most of the time we overflow with hilarity & explode w/loud bursts of laughter! Celebrate life & share interaction, adventure, excitement & imaginative new frontiers with whimsical playful, wacky, hilarious, inspiring, open-minded, supportive people.
FREE & BY DONATION ( no one turned away for lack of funds --just sometimes a basket at the side of the gathering towards renting indoor/outdoor space to fit this large growing gathering during the cooler/damper months; & getting equipment )
We sometimes host other free or donation Gatherings with interactive social activities before or after gatherings: We’re part of a large network of friends from diverse communities who get together & host daylight hour activities gatherings focused on celebrating life together in person in the real world, not spending our life on the net!: Brainstorm w/us at gatherings & share suggestions for activities you’d like to do or host --no matter how unusual: the possibilities are infinite!
Some of the other activities we host are beginning classes inInteractive Kundalini Yoga & Acro Yoga, Interactive Breathwork, & AFFIRMassage; or Interactive Belly Dance; & sometimes we host Contra Dances:
