Why is Bubble the passion project that made you commit your time, effort and expertise?
Having previously worked for London Bubble from 2015-2017, I have seen first-hand the impact of Bubble’s ground-breaking projects and the role that theatre can play in supporting communities, promoting wellbeing and bringing to the forefront key societal issues. Therefore, I jumped at the chance to become a trustee as I truly believe that London Bubble’s model of developing theatre with the local community is an example of world class practice and is something to be admired and celebrated. London Bubble is more than just a theatre company but provides a space where one can come to play, laugh, exchange stories, connect, make friends and use theatre as a tool to share common concerns and interests. As Bubble celebrates its 50th anniversary I am excited and honoured to be able to share my skills and expertise to ensure that the organisation continues to go from strength to strength.
What makes a great trustee?
A great trustee is someone who is deeply passionate about the mission of the organisation and is invested in ensuring the sustainability and longevity of the companies work. This passion should be met with qualities that include being open, present, honest, committed, brave, approachable, kind, a team player, compassionate and empathetic.
What is your theatre space and why?
Well as a theatre-maker this is very hard to answer but one of my favourite spaces is Shakespeare’s Globe. I am lifelong fan of the works of Shakespeare and love the aesthetic of the space, which always makes me feel as if I am being transported back in time to the Elizabethan era.
