Book Joanna Marr
Joanne Marr joined The Village Storytelling Centre in April 2015, from her background in Community Arts, and has many years’ experience working with diverse groups of all ages and abilities, including Deaf groups. She has completed Levels 1 and 2 BSL. One of her specialisms is working with people with additional and complex support needs.
Joanne has developed and delivered many diverse projects during her time at The Village including a story gathering project with Sunshine Recovery Cafe 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 in 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 in them, old tales with a modern twist, Scottish tales and those from further afield. Joanne is equally comfortable with telling to audiences of all ages and abilities, including those with profound disabilities.
Joanne also currently holds a Level 2 in BSL (British Sign Language) from Signature and is studying Level 3.
