Samantha Adams (Executive Committee Member)
Samantha was delighted to be co-opted to the Executive in January 2018 and remains passionate about serving as the Link person to Theatre/Arts & Health, and Inclusion and Visibility, Subcommittees. As a freelance Dramatherapist she works in the education and charity sector with children who have been excluded from mainstream education, and women at risk of the criminal justice system. She is also a Visiting Lecturer at Roehampton, where she trained.
Samantha’s current focus within the Executive is to support and ensure the voice and experiences of Black, Asian, and other ethnic minority Dramatherapists are heard, represented, and researched. Her own ongoing research is related to inter and transgenerational trauma, and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, with performance and Heritage Object work.
