If you are between the ages of 18 and 32, you may be interested in joining a program that teaches InterPlay's "sneaky deep" way of building artistic skill, leadership ability and strong community. Learn from InterPlay founders and millennial leaders preparing you to leave with creative, embodied InterPlay tools and techniques used around the world in peacemaking, prisons, classrooms, theaters, homes, places of worship, and health care. Plus you get to play, visit Bay Area redwoods, social change organizations and get incredible support for your path.

Alumni are supported beyond the program to share leadership within the InterPlay community and beyond..

Explore with the InterPlay founders and other community artists about ways to help people play with difficult issues, listen and share the wisdom of their body, and tell stories in ways that are direct, personal, and transformational.

The program takes place Monday through Friday over two weeks with some evening programming including a concert by the InterPlay performing company "WING IT!"
