I am a theatre director, playwright, producer, and professional storyteller, now living and working on the traditional territories of the Coast Salish Peoples. I have written five books on different approaches to co-creating theatre with people in communities about the issues that matter to them. In the past two years I have been working with the International Centre of Art for Social Change as a mentor for several emerging artists creating community-based performance work around issues of climate change activism and sustainability. I have borrowed a personal credo from Philip Pullman who writes: “Responsibility and delight can co-exist.”
