Female, , birthday 10th June
Joined August 2017

I am a visual and performance artist, skilled facilitator and Project Coordinator. I have over 10 years experience of working as a lecturer in the FE sector, where I also worked as a Manager and Coordinator and in my early career as a Support Worker. I work freelance in the voluntary sector, specialising in project coordination and facilitation. My work has focused on women’s equality and social leadership and is underpinned by a Systems and Complexity Approach to Social Change and a keen interest in creativity and the creative process. I have maintained a creative practice since beginning my journey as an artist in 1999. I recently became involved with The Republic of the Imagination where I am developing my own CoArts practice and making Sensory Labyrinth Theatre. I am also Founder of Share Cardiff, a new emergent enterprise that seeks to build a community of communities committed to sustainability and activating the urban commons for a better future, by people, for people. Shining a spotlight on sharing, solidarity and the new economy in Cardiff.

What is this magic that emerges when we become immersed in the creative process? How might acknowledging our own talents move us forward creatively?

For me, the story we need to start learning how to tell in order to, as George says ‘infect the minds of people’ is that of how we really do begin to start living more sustainably on the Earth, and not just fussing around the edges like we are now. How can we, as individuals within communities have new social imaginings, how can we create new narratives for our time? We have to change how we think about ourselves and our world, can we do this through the stories we tell?

In the busyness of everyday life, making time for creative practice can end up low on the list of priorities. After a day at the laptop I find it challenging to motivate myself to create, and then in my own time I am a pro at procrastination. I motivate myself by promising to take at least one tiny step, and I usually succeed. In fact, the tiny step I take tends to lead to greater things.
