THE BIG INTERVIEW with Theatre Maker Viv Gordon

1 March 2021
Viv Gordan


THE BIG INTERVIEW with Theatre Maker Viv Gordon

We are proud to feature a range of artists and friends through this series of Wiltshire Creative Connects films we created during the Spring of 2020.

Bringing personalities centre stage

It’s time to grab a cuppa and enjoy a full-length conversation with personalities who have worked with Wiltshire Creative in the past, either on stage or behind the scenes.

This week we talk to Viv Gordon. She will share insight into her survivor-led theatre practice, the development of her theatre company and what projects she has been working on during lockdown. Viv will be chatting to Theatre Director, Jo Newman.

Viv Gordon is a theatre maker, arts and mental health campaigner and survivor activist. She makes tender punchy political work grounded in her lived experience as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Her work is a campaign to nurture voice, visibility and community for survivors and to agitate for change.

Supporting recovery from childhood abuse
The damage caused by child abuse doesn’t always end in childhood. We offer support to adult survivors and training for those who support them. We run support groups when there is funding to do so.
