I’m an experienced workshop presenter and facilitator.
I enjoy creating supportive spaces for sharing and learning, especially those tailored to the marginallised communities I have worked within for many years: queer, kink, disabled, sex worker and survivors.
Topics I’ve taught on and communities I’ve worked within are expansive. I have been teaching workshops on writing and performance from a politicised perspective for over a decade. How we say it, why we say it, and who our audiences is, are all important. I’m also an experienced educator on sexuality. below is a brief list of some workshops and groups I’ve worked with.
Writing and performing:
Online/London ‘Playing With Fire – peer to peer survivor writing’, Vienna: for Activist Comedy Against Bullshit: two day political comedy writing and performing intensive. Vienna: for Das Kunst Migrant Theatre, six month collaboration, Queer Beograd Border Fuckers Cabaret 2004- 2011.
