Lydia is passionate about community engagement, and works to bring people together and support their mental health and wellbeing through providing safe and inclusive spaces for them to make and enjoy a range of art forms.
Lydia’s writing has been published online and in print, and she has organised, hosted and performed at multiple art and poetry events.
She also has a talent for delivering creative projects and workshops, and is the pioneer of Allie’s Art Club, a grassroots community arts organisation.
