Building a culture of care in circus with Jodie Cole

Earlier this year, we were recruiting for a Jerwood Creative Fellow. Jodie has now jumped on board the Extraordinary Bodies ship and we’re so happy to welcome her to the team. We made a short video (captioned and audio described) for you to meet her. In it, Jodie talks about her inclusive practice, why she is driven by the idea of a culture of care and what she thinks of our show in-the-making “Human” (stay tuned). She also tells us about a funny random thing that happened to her in the past, which is a guaranteed giggle. Watch the video below for sneak peek into Jodie’s world:

Extraordinary Bodies is proud to be one of 50 organisations taking part in Jerwood‘s creative bursaries programme.
