Other Creative Practice
In 2023 I was selected to participate in Canberra Theatre Centre’s New idea’s Lab to explore adapting my writing for live performance. I worked with Danielle Micich, the Artistic Director of Force Majeure as my mentor.
In October 2022 I designed the costumes for Everyman Theatre‘s staging of Beautiful Thing by playwright Jonathan Harvey.
In November 2021, I participated in the creative journalling challenge as part of the Design Canberra Festival. This is a scan of my journal.
