I’ve always loved creative activities, especially writing and performing. But I’ve also loved disappearing into imaginary worlds through reading, and stretching my imagination to picture future worlds, other worlds, other ways of living. iOi workshops combine arts with science in order to show young people just what their imaginations can achieve, and what they can aspire to do later in life. iOi offers an opportunity to think differently about the world, and an opportunity to test, explore, fail, and try again. As a performer and facilitator, this is an ethos that comes into all my work, and I feel privileged to be part of a team that creates these opportunities for young people to learn by playing, exploring and creating.
