Norah Zuniga Shaw Movement Storming
Movement Storming is a creative facilitation practice invented as an alternative to brainstorming. It works well as a kick-off process for researchers seeking to build collaboration or shared references and a nice opener for conferences or events. It is even better as an interruption or refresh along the way in virtually any research endeavor when things have become too narrowly defined, the process feels stuck or there is a need for connection. It is also great as the basis for a writing jam to get a few pages crafted or pen initial ideas. This short offering outlines the score for creating a Movement Storm and a few reflections from participants.

This workshop was facilitated as part of the ADiE ‘Researching (in/as) Motion’ research intensive at University of Chichester, June 2018. Following a ‘community building’ warm-up, the session invited participations to engage in a ‘movement storming’ process (see Norah Zungia-Shaw in this collection) as a way to explore ethical concerns. For further explication of the materials shared with participants of the workshop, see the essay and scores by Midgelow in this same collection.
