Change Maker

Working with story, I bring my particular collection of skills and experience to inspire, provoke and encourage new narratives.

Using interdisciplinary practice to unpack the stories we tell ourselves and the tales we tell others, I use image-work, dialogue, writing, movement, voice-work, and performance. Exploring cultural myths and ancestral stories, I am currently developing my work with rites and ritual.

 

The processes I work with are collaborative and emergent, bringing both depth and rigour in getting to the heart of an issue.

Amongst others I am inspired by this definition of a social artist by Jean Houston . . .

"Social Artistry is the art of enhancing human capacities in the light of social complexity.

It seeks to bring new ways of thinking, being and doing to social challenges in the world."

I am interested in the process of alchemy,

whether the medium is people, clay, fabric, or food. .

 

I believe, when we dare

to bring our courage and creativity together

with the intention of exploring change, magic can happen!

"The work needs to address issues that people care about,

in a way that people can understand,

with the goal of making change."

'investigating how we are as human beings, 
and the structures we design for ourselves'

What do you dare explore?

'unpacking the stories we tell ourselves,
and the identities we co-create'

What other people say . . . 

"Rosalind is a skilled workshop designer and facilitator. Her superpower is the design of interdisciplinary arts processes crafted to help participants make that deep dive into different parts of their psyche an easy ask; for example, working with a favourite childhood story.  Accessing 'The Little Mermaid' enabled me to see a multitude of different facets of me as well as the context I live within.  Reflecting back, that empowered me to take the best of each facet and then employ those strengths out in the world.  This was gentle yet deeply potent work."

‘What a rich, soul nourishing day '

Journey to the Heart of Bravery' was! I felt seen, heard, accepted & celebrated among a powerful circle of 10 women. An honour to have been part of it and grateful for all the ‘tools’ I am taking with me, thank you for your skilled facilitation.

"Working on the preparation and delivery of the showcase and
discussion as part of the 'Bravery School' Artists Residency was one that tested the group. The result showed great dedication and professionalism by everyone involved to fully participate. The strength of trust between each other was strong enough to improvise a performance before the rehearsed showcase.

This was a real highlight for me."

Annalease Paul - Bravery School Participant in 2017 Artists Residency

"The highlights of the Bravery School Artists Residency for me were as follows . . . 

  • Your flexibility, your welcoming, your celebration, your trust in me as a visiting facilitator. 

  • Very quickly being welcomed by an amazing group of women

  • .Experiencing the trust and your incredible holding in the space

  • The extraordinary pushing of boundaries, touching on deep issues in a really beautiful and profound way.

Thank you for the experience."

Tallulah Rendall - Singer Songwriter and Creative Facilitator

Reflecting on my experience during the Bravery School Residency and its impact on my professional practice, it was a really good reminder of how collaborating with artists of different disciplines and backgrounds is really important to me as a choreographer.

The stories we shared and the workshops we did gave me some inspiration to create new choreographic material.

 

During this residency I also realised that I should explore more how games and exercises can turn into performance pieces or movement material. I’ve always liked experimenting and exploring through games to make movements and construct a piece but I feel that lately this is something I have put aside.   This residency and these vignettes we created reminded me how important that is.
