About this Event

Drama workshop lead by Lucy Sheen 周麗端. Lucy is a dyslexic actor, writer, filmmaker, trainer and transracial adoptee advocate who happens to love Dim sum, Yorkshire puddings and a nice cuppa of Cha!

Lucy’s first professional job was the female lead in the ground breaking British feature film, directed by Po Ch’ih Leong PING PONG. The first British film of it’s kind to look at the issues facing the British-Chinese living and working in the UK. Lucy is now a published poet, playwright, flash fiction writer and non fiction writer (transracial adoption). She has received paid commissions from Nimble Fish Arts, The Royal Court, Komola Collective and her latest commission is from ArtEd to write one of the final year shows for their BA acting students who graduate in 2020

Lucy will be joined by Annabel Crowley in dialogue about her work. Annabel is an artist and MA researcher into cultures of neurodivergence at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London (UAL). She has worked in and around disability since 2008, currently as an access and inclusion specialist (+ visiting lecturer) at UAL and a co-director of Culture Access.

Participants will have an opportunity to discuss with them about their own projects if they wish – time allowing. You can watch some of Lucy’s fabulous work on her website.

Lucy will be showing some of her work and how to use your own experiences in writing.
