Dr. Holmes' relationship to the Bioinformatics program of Boston University is long, if not continuous. Along with improvscience performance director Mia Anderson of Mia Anderson Consulting, Dr. Holmes has been integrating performance coaching within the bioinformatics graduate seminar.

Can we perform our way to power?

The practice, understanding and appreciation for performance and play continue to grow, its appearance in science and other STEM areas being one example of its growth. Simultaneously, the world context in which performance spreads becomes more conflicted. The cultural/political crossroads in the world raise the question of power — how it is created and where the opportunities are for ordinary people to exercise power.  It is this perspective that inspired the theme of Performing the World 2016: Can We Perform Our Way To Power?

This August, improvscience returns to Arizona State University. The Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute (MTBI), led by Carlos Castillo-Chavez is recognized as a Program in Exemplary Mentoring. Dr. Raquell Holmes of improvscience will conduct workshops and coaching based on the success of MTBI to develop faculty in their mentoring capacity.
