Using her experience as an actor and her BA Hons in Drama, Kiara has lead various acting sessions with adults and children. The usual focus of a session is developing a safe shared space through play, improvisation, and ways of approaching characters creation.
Kiara learnt how to run Dementia Friendly dance and music sessions while helping with Creative Arts East's Our Day Out programme. She hopes to introduce elements of their approach when designing her own participatory events with her theatre company Fine Time Theatre Co.
Working for a small local charity, Kiara ran a denim upcycling session at Norwich Maker's Fayre in 2020. With Kiara's involvement, more events on mending, embroidery, and upcycling should be scheduled by the charity (Covid-19 allowing). An exciting element of designing these sessions is the small budget as it leads to a real need for creative problem solving and innovation.
