MINI MAKE BELIEVE
In 2010 I Produced Mini Make Believe. A programme of Interactive Storytelling adventures for under fives and their families at Somerset House.
I devised and delivered an original swashbuckling storytelling adventure each month for over two years, with tailored missions, games and crafts for each theme.
In 2012 I created 'Storybuilding' workshops designed to support creative writing in schools for ks1 and ks2.
I began to devise a series of Storybuilding games and activities to exercise the imagination.
This work has grown and continues to this day.
storyteller of the year
In 2014 I lead the campaign 'Get into Reading' for Uxbridge. The campaign included 'The Young Storyteller of the Year' competition.
I devised workshops to showcase your inner author and set the competition challenge to write a 500-word story.
I was invited to be on the panel of judges to decide the winning entries.
Hundreds of stories were also curated for a public exhibition at the Intu Shopping Centre. The winning story was published and available at Waterstones.
In 2016 I founded Storycycle Theatre Company.
Inviting audiences to re-imagine, recycle and respond as a community.
I worked as part of the team behind Utopia 2016.
The Year of Imagination and Possibility at Somerset House. Marking the 500th Aniversary of Thomas More's Book Utopia. I was lucky enough to represent the project at the International Utopia 500 Symposium in Delphi and Athens.
