Alison Catlin writes about a project which used a creative approach to improve wellbeing, reduce isolation and investigate how the arts can be used to explore library spaces in new ways.
Alison has a degree in Theatre from Lancaster University. After a brief foray after graduation into the world of marketing, she returned to theatre and worked at Stratford East, the Traverse, the Bush, Interplay Theatre Company and Worcester Swan Theatre. From there, she joined South Gloucestershire Council as an Arts Development Officer and is now their Public Art and Cultural Events Co-ordinator.
