Sally Hughes

CIVIC INNOVATOR & CHANGE FACILITATOR I am a skilled facilitator, project coordinator, writer and visual and performance artist.

I am Founder of Share Cardiff, a new emergent enterprise that seeks to build a community network committed to sustainability and activating the urban commons for a better future, by people, for people. Shining a spotlight on sharing, solidarity and the new economy in Cardiff.

I have maintained a creative practice since beginning my journey as an artist in 1999. I am a Creative Associate with the The Republic of the Imagination where I am developing my own CoArts practice and making Sensory Portals and Sensory Labyrinth Theatre.

I have over 10 years experience of working as a lecturer in the FE sector, where I also worked as a Manager and Coordinator and in my early career as a Support Worker. I work freelance in the voluntary sector. My work focuses on women’s equality and social leadership and is underpinned by a systems and complexity approach to social change, active citizenship and civic participation. I have a keen interest in creativity and the creative process.
