Playful learning and joyful connection

I've spent the last few years sharing my improv knowledge in different ways. I've done courses, workshops, social media posts, coursebooks, blogs etc.

But I've realised what I've been missing, it's community! What I always want from improv is that connection with other improvisers.

When I teach a course I get to meet these incredible improvisers and then quite often they're gone after a few weeks.

And I know there's lots of improvisers out there that are missing that connection too. Maybe there's not much improv in their area or they can't attend many courses, perhaps they're a parent or have a chronic condition. There's so many of us out there wanting an improv community.

So that is why I am creating the Improv Geekery Patreon account. Patreon is an online space where creators build memberships by providing exclusive access to their work and a deeper connection with their communities The aim of the Improv Geekery Patreon account is to create a community of people where we can connect and playfully learn together.

The Patreon will have 3 tiers, the geeks, the nerds and the superfreaks! Each tier has it's own benefits that you have access to. I'll be going into more detail about each of the benefits over the course of the month but here's an initial break down.
