SpeakUp Survivors is a new programme of creative work, funded by a generous grant from the National Lottery Community Fund, supporting women who have survived domestic and sexual abuse. 

Over two years we are working creatively with survivors who identify as female or non-binary, leading drama workshops that focus on theatre making, building confidence and providing a platform for the voice of survivors. We will embark on a national tour of a new production with supporting workshops, created with the survivors, in 2022. 

my role. 

As Associate Artist of the company, I co-wrote the successful funding bid, co-devised the project from scratch, am co-leading the workshop programme and co-directing the final production alongside Izzy Kabban.


I am a Lived Experience Leader, having survived abuse myself, and am delighted to be combining my personal experience with my creative portfolio to co-lead this exciting project with Izzy.
