Jessica Penrose

Jessica Penrose of Playful Being has been involved in community arts and creativity for over 15 years. An inspiring facilitator and trainer, as well as a writer and comedy improviser, she is a firm believer in the transformative power of play and creativity. Through her extensive experience of programming, managing and delivering participatory arts projects and events, Jessica has seen first-hand how enabling people to express themselves creatively can have a major impact - a little creative playfulness can light people up, help them reconnect with what gives them joy, change the way they feel about themselves and others, and cope better with whatever life throws at them.
