An enthusiastic advocate of International Baccalaureate education, I am an examination team leader for Diploma Programme (DP) Theatre and am a member of the examination standardisation team, as well as an experienced educator in IB MYP and DP Theatre. I'm on the review team planning and shaping the next iteration of DP Theatre, coming in 2021. I'd be happy to discuss with you how I can collaborate in your school to make the most of your IB Theatre course.

ISTA (International Schools Theatre Association) is a brilliant collective of passionate theatre experts, teachers and students. They run energising festivals each year for young people to learn and meet new friends from around the world. They are also the exclusive provider of IB DP Theatre Category 1, 2 & 3 workshops. I am proud to work with ISTA as an artist and workshop leader, and proud to bring my own students across the globe to experience their festivals.

My specific focus within theatre has been Design and Scenography, particularly within Immersive Theatre. With extensive experience training teachers and students in immersive theatre and/or design within Performing Arts curricula, I would be happy to help you plan or deliver immersive theatre, technical theatre and design experiences in your setting.

Industrial Education has a stranglehold over most of the world's education systems, stifling generations of children in their creativity and capacity to engage with learning. I am currently researching what components are needed in future education systems, collaborating with other educators to drive the desire for change. I would love to know what has worked for you, and to discuss the spectrum of possibilities available as we enter the fourth revolution of education.
