Tanya Akrofi

Tanya is a writer and oral storyteller whose practice unpicks the symbolism and lessons in myths and fairy tales, using them to create tools to help us overcome the challenges of living today. Her work is about empowerment, community-building, and interrogates how we can centre curiosity and enchantment in our daily lives, in order to create resilience and compassion. Through modern re-tellings, interactive performance and workshop facilitation, her work aims to reconnect audiences with the magic and joy of storytelling and ultimately the hope which emerges when we come together.
