I have had an extraordinary life journey. My values took me to the rave scene, the front line of the Mayday and climate protests and deep into celebrity and eco culture. My passion has taken me to the cutting edge of digital design, showing a jewellery collection at London Fashion Week, gaining a post grad cert in acting, and now to singing in London’s first kinky choir. I’m now working for a leading charity, and researching ways to help people express and live their values in their everyday lives as part of my MA at Central St Martins.

Past workshops have included:

I've also facilitated talks and debates with small and large groups at corporate events and festivals. I’ve had equal fun leading dance improvisations for 50 people and hosting small craft and make do and mend classes.

Why Manifestos?

I’ve been mapping the values expressed in a wide variety of manifestos, and have discovered that many of them tap into desires common to many of us – freedom of expression, the right to choose how we want to be treated, or to address an imbalance in power or access to resources. Some have had an impact way beyond the scope of the original idea – taking on a life of their own, other have yet to reach their potential. By empowering people to create their own manifestos we are helping them tap into one of the most profound and life changing tools we have – or just giving them the space to have a fun evening with friends!

House of Fairytales: Mermaid Nation

Mermaid Nation began as a character led performance given and climate protests and camps. Working with The House of Fairytales we have developed a whole world for participants to enter.

Listening to the deep

The ocean is a powerful place, and though it can be very destructive, it also carries the currents and nutrients around the oceans which in turn warm and feed us. Ocean evaporation feeds the clouds that provide our rain and rivers. We contain 80% water, and are born out of salt water – so let’s rethink how and where water fits into our personal stories and the stuff around us.

Rising from the deep

What do fairy and folk tales that speak of the ocean tell us about water and about ourselves? Having looked at these old stories and what they tell us - let’s create something new.

Each day using costume, movement, and voice we take a small group of young people through an exploration of the nature and meaning of the ocean to each of them. At the end of each day we conclude with a performance or other conclusive format that will express their stories to the world – as the group decides.

This session was delivered on the 21st of March at the Shunt Theatre, future dates TBC

We All Reuse

Since 1999, Lucy Wills has been exploring ways to reduce waste and expand reuse both off and online. Her current pilot project may be found at

Last year Lucy was invited to be a fellow of the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce) - "In recognition of your work to raise awareness of sustainability issues in the fashion industry and build a community of environmentally aware designers".

we all reuse has been established to:

* Encourage and publicise the work of designers and manufacturers who reuse industrial and consumer waste.
* Promote reuse as one of the most effective ways of reducing our consumption and therefore our impact on the environment
* Showcase interesting ideas and share our experiences
* Provide a private network where designers and other organisations can meet to discuss the issues of working with reclaimed materials.

we all reuse is edited and maintained by the designers themselves. Other users may post stories or forum topics, however these will be moderated and may be subedited by we all reuse.

If you are a designer, supplier, academic or interested person who would like to join we all reuse, please sign up.

There are some other great initiatives out there encouraging reuse - and they're on our resources page. If we've missed one, let us know.

we all reuse is hosted and developed by, and has been built using Drupal.
