Joanne joined The Village Storytelling Centre in April 2015, from her background in Community Arts, with many years’ experience working with diverse groups of all ages and abilities, including Deaf groups, utilising her Level 2 Certificate in British Sign Language (BSL).
One of Joanne’s specialisms is working with people with additional and complex support needs and she developed and delivered many diverse projects during her time at The Village, including a story gathering project with Sunshine Recovery Café, who support people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, an employability project with people with learning disabilities, and a project to improve and support literacy, language and bonding for newly arrived refugee and asylum-seeking families.
Joanne has a real ability to reach people of all generations with her enthusiasm and unique delivery style. She loves to tell stories with strong female characters, old tales with a modern twist, Scottish stories and those from further afield. Joanne is equally comfortable telling to audiences of all ages and abilities.
