Me: TEDx Speaker, Performer, Spaceship Charmer and Artist. .
Hello, I am Rosie Allen. I am a creative, and as such, have lived a fairly creative path...
My path is full of varied interests which have guided me to the life I now lead.
I have spent most of my career as a Domestic Abuse Specialist, supporting victims, perpetrators and providing many trainings in this area. This fulfils my deep desire for respect, justice and making a difference in such a dark area. That same desire lead me on the path to the TEDx Talk: The Hidden Message In Your Silence.
Other than that, I am a performer of comedy improv, a spaceship charmer (fairly new to this very cool instrument called a Handpan) a writer and an artist.
I have also a keen interest in the role of gender and women in society and the preconceived ideas we get fed through media, film, TV, adverts etc.
This lead me to a collection of paintings on The Dangers Of Disney. Where I used some of Disney's films to question the dodgy messages they send children - especially around gender. Ranging from romanticising abuse to ageism, this work tackles how children are picking up ideas that shape them and negatively impact their outlook on the world and themselves.
