The Indeterminacy Method
Step outside your thinking patterns
The Indeterminacy Consulting Group (ICG) is a creative production house founded by Stanzi Vaubel. Drawing upon her extensive experience as a festival director and scholar, Dr. Vaubel employs The Indeterminacy Method to collaborate with artists, academics, and practitioners across disciplines to design performances, lectures, and educational seminars. ICG is a laboratory where practitioners are invited to test new ideas that are often at the edge of their disciplinary expertise. It is a place for experimental exploration, serving as an incubator to design new strategies for creating meaning in the 21st century.

Stanzi Vaubel, PhD, developed The Indeterminacy Method over the past seven years as an extension of her work as a Fulbright Fellow (2020), PhD Scholar (University of Buffalo), advisor at McGill University's Building 21, and the founder/director of The Indeterminacy Festival (2016-present). Passionate about interdisciplinary learning and the under-exploited role of improvisation in creative development, Stanzi designed The Indeterminacy Method as a means of training others to maximize their agency, preparedness, and ingenuity in response to complex and challenging situations. The Indeterminacy Consulting Group is the fruition of her extensive academic research and hands-on experience examining the fertile territories that exist between and among disciplines. Her consulting practice, seminars, and events series all focus on revealing the untapped intelligence one can harness by surrendering traditional thinking patterns and social constructs in favor of more fluid, informed, and holistic responses.
"The wide array of processes and ideas touched upon always kept me on my toes, never allowing me to settle in the comfort of a recurring/predictable mindset. "
