How would you define yourself?
Creative Producer, Community Practitioner
Please describe yourself and your areas of interest.
I am an experienced freelance Creative Producer and Community Practitioner who has worked to increase connection and wellbeing in local communities in Sheffield, London, Dewsbury and Birmingham.
