creative facilitator:facilitating creativity.
I love finding new and exciting ways to get people thinking, talking and writing together
I've been facilitating groups since I was a teenager. In my work life I trained as a mediator and practiced in a variety of contexts including criminal justice, family work and training peer mediators in schools. As a member of the national team of Organisational Change Facilitators with Action for Children I completed advanced facilitation training with circleindigo.
In 2018 I achieved my long time ambition to complete an MA in Creative Writing and during that year also formalised my use of Philosophy for Communities facilitation through SAPERE accredited training. A year working with Ignite Imaginations in community and partictipatory arts provided the practical element of my creative apprenticeship.
My facilitation is grounded in long experience, honed by practice of philosophical enquiry and open to new collaborative possibilities.
