Speaking Engagements

If you have an upcoming festival or event and are seeking an engaging speaker, I am available and am excited to share my work and my experiences with your group.

I can speak on:

  • disability in the performing arts

  • ableism and representation in the arts

  • accessible theatre practice

  • collaborative theatre making

  • disability and womanhood

  • how disability does not make me an inspiration

  • balancing work and creative commitments while prioritising self-care


Do you have a school group? I can also speak on:

  • anti-bullying, anti-discrimination and respect

  • basic disability awareness training

  • motivational speaking for young adults

  • career pathways (even when your final year 12 results don’t get you into your first choice!)

I am happy to speak on any of the above topics, but can also combine topics to personalise the speaking engagement and cater to the needs of your organisation or school.
