Since early 2017 I have been thrilled to serve as the Chairperson of Stretch, a charity headed by Carlotta Allum. Stretch is dedicated to facilitating arts provision – especially storytelling – to people within the criminal justice system as well as others who find themselves on the margins of society. For a number of reasons I’ve decided to step down as Chair – as of July 2018 – but remain committed to Stretch.
I’m currently helping bring some of the outcomes of recent Stretch projects to a wider audience. There are a number of nascent projects on the horizon, while in the immediate future is my collaboration with artist and Stretch storycatcher Wallis Eates on the project known as ‘Wings‘.
You can catch all of us at a special event at Central St. Martin’s on September 13th. Tickets are free and available from EventBrite. Hope to see you there!
