The Global Improvisation Initiative (GII) was launched in 2016 to support an ongoing, international exploration of the art and impact of improvisation -- appreciating the rich history and diversity of our field -- and to promote the evolution and advancement of theatrical improvisation for future generations.


The inaugural GII Symposium took place in 2017 at both University of California at Irvine and Chapman University and served as an intellectual and artistic nexus for sharing, producing, and documenting new knowledge about improvisational processes happening within the performance arts industries and beyond.
