Sian Burford-Thomas
Theatre maker & practitioner
I work with young people and communities to share stories, explore identity and develop skills through theatre making. I enjoy working with texts and well as devising original work, and it's really important to me that anyone taking part is at the centre of the process. I’m fascinated by what motivates us as human beings, exploring the catalysts for action and change, and the stories that make us who we are. I run inclusive workshops and encourage laughter, teamwork and a positive shared experience. I now work as a freelance artist after having spent 8 brilliant years at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich.
Library & Information Advisor
I'm Eloise! I'll be your Blank Page Assistant in the Stowmarket workshops. I work part time as a librarian at Stowmarket Library and I'm also a freelance artist myself, so I'm happy to bounce back and fuel any of your wonderfully creative ideas =) In my free time I'm a bit of a nerd who likes animation, video games, and cats.
