I have worked with Cecilia since 2014, and she has a delivered a number of spoken word workshops for the education programme at the Roundhouse. She is a confident and experienced facilitator and has led workshops for a variety of different groups, including KS3 and KS4 mainstream schools, pupil referral units, as well as leading CPD workshops for teachers. She has a wealth of knowledge of what exercises work for different groups of young people. I would definitely be able to recommend her as an experience and engaging facilitator for schools.

‘This workshop made me think about who I am’
‘It gave me the chance to think deeply about myself and my creativity.’
‘I feel like I can explain my feelings’
‘I’m taking away positivity, and knowing that anything is possible if you believe in yourself’
‘I feel more confident’
‘I am going to try a lot harder now in the things I choose to do in life’
I am an experienced workshop facilitator and I have worked in numerous schools, libraries, theatres and community centres both in London and the rest of the UK delivering spoken word and creative writing workshops.
I previously worked at the Roundhouse as Youth Engagement Officer, which enabled me to work with a diverse range of young people on creative projects.
I believe in the positive benefits of self-expression which can be achieved through spoken word and creative writing and has seen first-hand improved literacy, confidence and engagement in the people I have worked with.
I have worked with primary, secondary and A level students in numerous UK schools. I have also taught workshops to university level students. I have worked with young people at youth theatres, youth centres and charities such as the Roundhouse, The Lyric, Body and Soul, Haringey Shed and Cardboard Citizens. I also run creative sessions for adults in workplaces. I facilitate for adults suffering from long term mental health problems and I have facilitated in prisons. My workshops are designed to empower the people I work with by helping them find their voice. I have taught workshops internationally, recently completing some work in Johannesburg with young people from Soweto and also teaching for a week in Abu Dhabi. Workshops can be tailored to the needs of each individual group I work with.
