TALKS

I am an experienced public speaker, facilitator and workshop leader. My practice is rooted in the idea of “taking space to make space” for/with historically marginalised people and communities. I am a strong believer in everyone’s right to take part in and create culture, regardless of their backgrounds & identities and I actively raise awareness about it whenever I can.

Creative facilitator - co-creation and devising

 

I am an experienced facilitator who holds space and brings people together to create. From co-creation (equitably working with others to build a common idea) to devising performance, I specialise in empowering people to use their voices to make the change they want to see in their lives and communities. 

Public speaker - cultural activism and policy

 

 I am a firm believer that everyone should have equitable access to culture and have the space, time and resources to be creative. I have experience with policy making and change at local, national and international level. Currently, I am a steering group member of the UK national movement for culture What Next? and one of the founding members of Migrants in Theatre Movement, advocating for a better representation of 1st generation immigrants both on and off stage.

Workshop facilitator - Producing

 

Over the years I have developed workshops to share my knowledge in event management and creative producing. I specialise in cross-cultural work, international projects and festivals, strategic planning and project delivery. My skills include fundraising (public, private and corporate), financial management, governance, team leadership and relationship management with artists, partners and communities.
