A wonderful privilege to have been part of the Stories for Change project with Arts in Health.


Working with Steve Killick, we ran workshops for foster carers and professionals working with families and looked after children. It was very humbling to hear the stories of resilience and achievement coming from these families. The three other projects - Daniel Morden with cancer patients, Jess Phillips and Prue Thimbley working in mental health, were really inspirational.

Everyone needs to go and see the Devil's Violin show Stolen, which will help us all survive these turbulent times.
