I am passionate about creating accessible opportunities for local people whether that’s to take part in a workshop or develop their career as an artist. Weston is my hometown and I want to enable local people to realise their potential and achieve their aspirations given that many of the current opportunities were not available whilst I was growing up here.
Over the past two years I have hosted poetry slams called Rhyme Against the Tide in the wonderful space at Loves Café. It has been lovely to watch many poets – some performing for the first time ever – step out of their comfort zone and showcase their talents. We’ve also competed against Margate and Bristol in head to head slam battles!
Being a part of the Super Culture team has allowed me to expand my knowledge beyond theatre and performance. I have learnt that growing creativity here can help improve people’s well-being and regenerate our spaces.
