Although I have been doing things with words and language for most of my life, it was not until a few years ago that I started creative writing.
I became involved with Collective Encounters in 2017, when I had my first experience as a stage actor. This was in the play “Cracked”, which was performed at Liverpool’s Everyman Theatre and at other venues around the City.
Music and singing was a constant in our house, we would act out films and take on different characters in a fun not serious way
I joined a drama group in 2008 and gained some confidence to perform
I love going to the theatre, art galleries and museums

Then I heard of Radical Makers. I was impressed with the manifesto. I want to know more about how performance can effect social change. I want to write a hard-hitting piece and get it performed, by people in crisis that would never think of themselves on a stage, like I was.
