Musical chairs with questions

Target group: 
Group size: 
This is a team building activity where at the same time people get to know each other.

Make a circle in the room with chairs. Prepare the session by sticking some questions behind the chairs (one question for each chair). The questions will be about creative activism, about expectations, personal information, weird questions, etc...

When the music starts, participants dance while moving around the circle of chairs. When the music stops participants should sit in the chair closest to them. The facilitator then point out some people and they have to answer the questions they have in their chair. After 3 or 4 people answered, the music starts again and participants start dancing again until the next time the music stops. Repeat this as many times as you think is necessary.

Some suggestions for questions are:

 What does creative activism means? One word that defines you? When you think about creative activism what do you think of? Something you would change in your country? Something you would ask for to politicians in your country? Make the noise of your favorite animal! What was the last artistic thing you have seen? Which famous character were you in love with when you were a teenager? Show us one your hit dance steps!Tell us something you have always wanted to do in the street and why!


Using variety of music styles and even cheesy music helps to set a relaxing and funny atmosphere. Take in account the type of group you have when you decide the type of questions you will stick in the chairs.
