Mary studied Creative Arts at Newcastle Poly and completed an MA in Social Work at Goldsmiths College. She grew up in The Worcester Arts Workshop, which was a free creative space where people came together to make theatre, dance, music and lots of painting and pottery. She is a yoga teacher and dance practitioner as well as an art facilitator. She has a particular interest in advocacy and people having a voice. She very much shares hARTslane’s vision of empowering people and communities through the arts.
