BIOGRAPHY

Female, , birthday 19th August
Joined January 2017

Learner, listener, observer, maker; crafting the perceived impossible to the possible; specialties include Cornish folk dance as @scootskernow, picking up languages, translating chaos into simplicity, grappling with whatever tech is on hand to support day-to-day life and work. Love world musics, steppin' time, and the warmth and sounds of the sea, the moors and the hedgerows, lighting beacons, and keeping the good fires burning. Live in sunny Cornwall with my boys :)

Work in the fast-changing world of "digital" with a great bunch of strategic designers and software engineers across the globe in one of the world's most ethical companies.

Latest home project was #NadelikLyskerrys / Liskeard Christmas, a whole community Cornish language project, as dancer and 'beacon'. Counting in Cornish with sprouts was both practical and highly amusing! Prior to that it was "Man Engine Day, Liskeard", bringing together around 90 entertainers to support a full day of entertainment before and after the ceremony. It's not often that a 10 meter tall mechanical puppet comest to town. The event acted as a perfect catalyst to bring the town council, business, community, schools and voluntary groups together in a highly collaborative and fun way through mining heritage and Cornish language. We had plans for rain, and hadn't anticipated the 30 minute delay in the ceremony, and how to keep the larger than anticipated crowd entertained (8,500 versus the anticipated 3,500-5,000) . . . one to figure out next time.

Social distancing . . . a first night of online shows from three brilliant artists: Talisk, Ross Couper & Tom Oakes and Tim Edey all streamed live via Facebook with links to donation boxes. Perfect for anytime, and especially coronavirus "lockdown".

A heartwarming evening of fun supporting projects that benefit our town and its communities at the second Liskeard SOUP micro granting dinner with a focus on health and well-being, solving gaps in public services from the grass roots up.

Learn a few Cornish dances in the run up to Bude Folk Festival. A great way to keep fit and have some fun with a friendly bunch of people! It's what Sunday afternoons were made for :D
