Community Engaged Pedagogy, Theater for Social Transformation

Urgyen is a current graduate student in Community-Engaged Research and Practice at UMass Amherst, a trainer with UACT, and a practitioner of Abhyas Somatics. Their work explores intersections of somatic embodiment, cultural organizing, transformative philanthropy, and theater for social transformation. They find joy in cultivating and supporting spaces for individual and collective liberation, playfulness, and connection. And decaf coffee! That’s the ticket to lasting joy, really.
