Join us for a creative conversation exploring ways in which to imbed a more fluid, inclusive mindset and approach into our theatre practice with diverse groups of young people. Through a variety of playful provocations, reflective exercises and a facilitated group discussion we will unpick what inclusion means to us as individuals, where our existing biases and assumptions lie, and how we then use this self-awareness and understanding to empower spaces and groups we work with. You may have considered inclusion a great deal before and have a clear approach in hand, you may be looking to refresh your thinking around it or you may be new to these kinds of conversations. Whatever your reasons to engage, you are welcome. This space is an invitation to embark on a bit of a journey with considering the intention behind your approach in facilitating inclusive work. And, crucially, this is a process; one that serves to raise as many helpful questions, at this time, as well as offering answers.
Milly works in a variety of spaces: in collaboration with communities with a frequent focus on young people’s engagement in the arts; leading training in spaces of organisational and professional development with a focus on Diversity and Inclusion; and writing, illustrating and creating independent work. She has contributed to various organisations through artistic practice, making shows, providing mentoring/leadership skills and consultancy.
Past/current positions and organisations include- Creative Associate at Chickenshed Theatre for Young Company and Corporate Training, Youth Theatre work at The Rose Kingston, NCS The Challenge, Tramshed, Southwark Playhouse (Young Company Director), National Youth Theatre (Associate Artist), and Sadler Heath (a professional development collective focusing on a variety of learning topics from leadership to organisational culture).
All Milly's work is united by the belief that artistic practice and theatre is one of the greatest tools to action social change and empowerment for a wide spectrum of individuals, communities and organisations. For me, creative practice and life itself is about discovering unexpected, delightful and empowering connection, whilst also celebrating our differences.
