My two sons both have a degenerative disability - our family life is difficult but illuminating.
Ive learned- through studying with storyteller Roi Gal-Or - that working on and sharing stories about your own difficult experiences can help you to process whats happened to you, as well as being valuable for other people to hear.
My short biographical story videos have been shared at regional health board meetings across wales, and I'm now working with NHS England on an accompanying workshop.
In October 2021 I was commissioned by Arts At The Old Fire Station, Oxford, to facilitate and produce ‘Lockdown Cinderella’, a series of biographical storytelling workshops with a group of carers in my local community.
In these workshops, we shared our stories of lockdown, and experimented with turning them into hero stories. You can watch our stories here.
