What can I expect from a CBAW Workshop?

  • CBAW facilitators come prepared with a project to offer. There will be time to discuss craft and talk about the project before your time to create (between 10 and 20 minutes). During the creation time, participants work separately, but together.
  • Facilitators will bring a particular medium (poetry, memoir, painting, drawing, etc). Participants are welcome to respond in the medium of their choice.
  • At the end, there will be time for participants to share as time permits. There’s never a requirement to share your work.
  • It is important to keep our space safe. We do not allow folks to rename themselves once they’ve entered the group. Be sure to change your name as it appears on Zoom before you join, or ask the facilitator to do it on their end.
  • After the program, a survey will pop up so you can give us your feedback. We read every comment and strive to make CBAW programs the best that they can be.

Zoom Etiquette

  • Please be on time. To minimize disruption and maximize engagement, participants will not be permitted after the first 10 minutes of the workshop.
  • To minimize background noise in sessions, please ‘Mute’ yourself when you are not speaking. If not, a facilitator may do it for you.
  • Always be kind and respectful of others.
  • The chat is open as a place for connection, questions, and affirmations. We ask that you be respectful in the chat, and keep to positive comments. This is not a space for critique of people’s work. Feel free to share resources and kindness.
  • For recorded sessions: On occasion, CBAW may choose to record program sessions. CBAW will not use any sharing in recordings to maintain privacy. If you want to make sure your image is not used by CBAW, please turn off your camera.
