What’s your role at 64 Million Artists and what do you love most about it?
As Head of Training and Development for 64MA, I design and deliver most of our training programmes. These focus on facilitation, community co-creation, cultural democracy and project management. I love the human connections at the heart of every project I work on. I also consult with organisations, helping them engage equally and meaningfully with communities – whether it’s a huge mega-project like a City of Culture, or a one-off workshop with a library, a care home or local authority. It’s a privilege to see communities taking creative control and thriving.
What is your favourite way to get creative?
I find creative ideas come when I’m in contact with water and nature. Some of my best ideas come in the shower or on a nice long walk through the woods. For me, the elements and nature open up doors of perception.
Outside of work/in your free time, what are you most passionate about?
Outside of work I have the privilege of being a psychotherapist in private practice. I see this work as synchronous with my work for 64 Million Artists. It’s all about facilitating people to manage their challenges and move to a place of self acceptance, creativity and self determination.As
