Utopia Playshop

Utopia Playshops at Rockhampton River Festival

This is a guided experience hosted by UnitePlayPerform’s Artist, Founder and Educator ØFFERINGS (Melissa Gilbert). 

In this guided Utopia Playshop, participants use object art, space, sense, movement, language and energy to stimulate radical self-expression; gaining new insights, experiencing liberation and increasing genuine connection to self and others.

Utopia Spirit Skins are high vibrational and interchangeable soft sculptures. Build up the archetypes on life vest suits to explore self concepts and identity through play. The larger-than-life forms, shapes and colours layer on the body to create your own unique avatar!

ØFFERINGS will move the community through the UnitePlayPerform method as a journey of self discovery. Here you’ll:

  • Co-create artworks using movement and design
  • Interact with new age sound healing tools, object art and tactile soft sculptures
  • Design your own wearable Utopia Spirit Skin

This is an immersive experience to cultivate community connection.
